Asbestos

This is the annual notification concerning asbestos as required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986. Since the last notification Kenosha Unified’s certified workers have made many repairs.  

There are no major asbestos abatement projects being planned at Kenosha Unified at this time. However, asbestos may be abated from time to time at various schools as the need arises. Students and staff will not be allowed in areas where asbestos abatement is in progress. 

All schools were “re-evaluated” for asbestos during the past school year and those Management Plans are available for inspection at the individual school offices or Facilities Services. 

If you have concerns or questions regarding asbestos, please call the Facilities Services Office at 359-6329.

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.
