AHERA Notification

The Swan Valley School District is required by 40 CFR 763.80 to notify all parents, guardians, students, and staff of the availability of the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Responses Act (AHERA) plan. Our buildings were first inspected in 1988, and the last three year reinspection was completed in December 2000. One copy of the plan is on file in the Principals office in each building and one copy is on file in the Marvin L. Johnson Administration Center. These plans are available for review during normal office hours by any person who has an interest. Personal copies of the plan may be duplicated within seven working days at a cost of 15 cents per page. Should any questions arise regarding our AHERA Program, please contact the Asbestos Designated Person from our school at the Administration Center, 921-3701.

Integrated Pest Management

The Swan Valley School District utilizes an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to control pests. IPM is a pest management system that utilizes all suitable techniques in a total pest management system with the intent of preventing pests from reaching acceptable levels or to reduce an existing population to an acceptable level. Pest management techniques emphasize pest exclusion and biological controls. However, as with most pest control programs, chemical control may also be utilized.

You have the right ot be informed prior to any application of an insecticide, fungicide or herbicide made to the school grounds or building during the school year. In certain emergencies, such as an infestation of stinging insects, pesticides may be applied without prior notice to prevent injury to students, but you will be notified following any such application. If you need prior notification, please complete the Prior Notification Request form that will be in your student’s information packet and return it to the school office.
