TO: Parents, Teachers, and Employees of Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy
FROM: Melanie Sithole, Principal
DATE: 2022-2023 School Year
SUBJECT: NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS BASED ON AHERA REGULATIONS
THIS NOTIFICATION LETTER is sent to you pursuant to the requirements of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986, as defined in the Environmental Protection Agency Regulations, 40 CFR Part 463, to notify you that a comprehensive, detailed Asbestos Survey (inspection) has been completed of APS schools and auxiliary buildings/facilities, and that a management plan has been developed for managing asbestos-containing material (ACM) (if any) found in a school or facility based on the sampled materials compiled during onsite inspections. This was executed in conjunction with an approved laboratory's microscopy test results on suspect materials which consultants obtained during this inspection work. Certified personnel from the consultant's firm acted on behalf of Atlanta Public Schools for both the inspection and the management plan work.
APS maintains a copy of each school's management plan in each school office and/or auxiliary building/facility. A duplicate copy of all management plans is also located at 1631 La France Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30307 or phone 404.802.3700.
Management plans are available for review and information at the above location. Please feel free to review the management plans which cover numerous items including but not limited to results of the inspection/assessment work, materials present response actions, scheduled post response action activities, periodic surveillance program, re-inspection activities planned, etc.
Should you have any questions or desire further information, please address those questions to the Local Education Agency (LEA) designee, Brandee Brown at 404.802.3720 or Victor Gaither at 404.802.3767.
Melanie Sithole, Principal
