All Dekalb County Schools have been inspected by an EPA-approved asbestos inspector
and maintain a management plan file in the school office as required under the AHERA
regulations. The file is available to any parent to view.
Most of our asbestos containing materials are in the form of floor tiles and are non-
friable. The law requires that we make this notice to all employees, students, and staff annually.
We are glad to provide a healthy atmosphere for students and staff.
