Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act

In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) which requires all primary and secondary schools to be inspected for asbestos-containing building materials. AHERA further requires that school districts develop and implement a plan to safely manage any asbestos- containing materials found to be present.

Schools in the Cupertino Union School District have been inspected and assessed by an accredited asbestos contractor. The inspection report filed by the contractor identifies the location, amount, condition, accessibility, potential for disturbance, and other pertinent information on any asbestos found. The report also certifies that there is no immediate health hazard from asbestos-containing materials in our schools.

Copies of a school’s inspection report, as well as the district management plan, are on file in the school office should you wish to review them during school hours. The district management plan also is available for review at the district office. If you have any questions or comments, please contact your school principal or call the Chief Business Officer at (408) 252-3000, Extension 423.

Annual Pesticide Notification

The Healthy School Act of 2000 (AB 2260) requires school districts to notify all parents and staff annually of the names of all pesticides and herbicides that are planned for use during the school year at all school sites.

The Cupertino Union School District has established an Integrated Pest Management approach which means that the district uses the least toxic method first and then work up to stronger chemicals, only if needed.

The following pesticides have been identified for possible use during the 2009–2010 school year. These products are used only by staff or contractors who have received appropriate application and safety training. Applications will occur during school vacations and staff learning days.

If you have any questions, please direct them to Toby Smith, Director, Maintenance, Operations and Transportation at (408) 252-3000, Extension 344.
