Annual Asbestos Notification
Under AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act), all primary and secondary schools are required to develop and implement a plan for managing all building materials which contain asbestos. Included in the AHERA Act is the requirement to annually notify all workers and building occupants (or their guardians) of asbestos-related activities.
Beginning in 1988, all buildings owned, leased, or “under the control of” the School District were inspected by EPA accredited inspectors, with building material samples analyzed by an independent laboratory. Based on the inspection, the School District prepared and the state approved a comprehensive management plan for managing the asbestos.
Where the asbestos-containing materials are found, the District has in place an Operations and Maintenance program.
The District has accomplished the following compliance mandates regarding the administration of asbestos in school buildings:
- Environmental Management Consulting, Inc. (EMC) was contracted to be the school’s consultant for asbestos for the school year.
- The District is continuing with the Operations and Maintenance Program as designed for the School District. This ensures that all asbestos materials are kept in good condition in good condition.
- Periodic “surveillance” in each area containing asbestos has been completed every six months by our consultant. Also, the buildings are re-inspected by an accredited inspector every three years.
- In the past year the District conducted the following asbestos removal activities:
- Window removal projects consisting of the following buildings: Bose Elementary, Hillcrest, Jeffery Elementary, McKinley Elementary, Southport Elementary, Washington Middle, Whittier Elementary and Wilson Elementary.
- AC projects: Harvey and Roosevelt Elementary
- HVAC Controls: e-School, Lincoln Middle and Reuther/Harborside
- Boiler Door Insulation: K-Tec West and Lincoln Middle
- Floor Mastic: Bradford High
All outside contractors shall contact the lead maintenance person before commencing work. Our goal at the District is to be in full compliance with asbestos regulations.
A copy of the Asbestos Management Plan is available for review by contacting the District Office. Questions related to this plan or any other asbestos concerns should be directed to the District’s Designated Person. Laurie Krueger, email@example.com.

The Kenosha Unified School District No. 1 (KUSD) has adopted policies, in consultation with parents, regarding these rights, as well as arrangements to protect student privacy in the administration of protected information surveys and the collection, disclosure, or use of personal information for marketing, sales, or other distribution purposes.

KUSD will also directly notify, such as through U.S. Mail or email, parents of students who are scheduled to participate in the specific activities or surveys noted below and will provide an opportunity for the parent to opt his or her child out of participation of the specific activity or survey. KUSD will make this notification to parents at the beginning of the school year if the District has identified the specific or approximate dates of the activities or surveys at that time. For surveys and activities scheduled after the school year starts, parents will be provided reasonable notification of the planned activities and surveys listed below and be provided an opportunity to opt their child out of such activities and surveys. Parents will also be provided an opportunity to review any pertinent surveys. Following is a list of the specific activities and surveys covered under this requirement:
- Collection, disclosure, or use of personal information for marketing, sales or other distribution.
