Carroll Latest BlogsThe Federal Asbestos Hazardous Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all school facilities to receive an intensive inspection to locate, identify and deal appropriately with the various types of asbestos that may have been used in the construction of the buildings. Only Carroll Junior Senior High and the Central Office ever had any Asbestos. These areas were remediated previously. Any existing Asbestos in any of our buildings undergoes an extensive biannual inspection by our Director of Maintenance. All Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) were located and documented in a "Management Plan” that is on file at each building. Carroll Elementary has no Asbestos.
All buildings are re-inspected by a licensed Asbestos inspector every three years, with the most recent being September 2013. This plan identifies and describes the appropriate methods of handling and maintaining any ACM that was found in the District's buildings. A copy of the Management Plan is located in the main office of each school building. It is available for review by students, staff members and the public.
The mere presence of ACM does not represent a health hazard. Asbestos presents a health hazard only when the fibers become airborne (friable asbestos). Any insulation that contained ACM and was in areas of direct access by students and staff has been removed or encapsulated. Other areas containing asbestos where there is no student or staff exposure is monitored according to code requirements for damage and repaired or removed as necessary. Our maintenance and custodial staff have been trained to identify ACM and are taking special precautions during their work to guard against disturbing the material. Carroll Consolidated School Corporation has maintained an asbestos management plan and is committed to protecting the health and welfare of our students, staff and all those who use our facilities. If you have any questions concerning asbestos, please contact Mr. Jeff Bordner, Director of Maintenance at (574) 967-4113.

Periodically throughout the year, it may be necessary that pesticides be applied to external and internal areas of the school building and grounds. If you wish to be given notice of such pesticide applications, please notify the principal of the building. You will be given a form to fill out and will be notified of any pesticide application with at least a 48-hour notice. Pesticide application will not be done when children, staff members or any other people are present in the area that is to be sprayed.
As part of CCSC's Integrated Pest Management Plan, TruGreen will apply treatment on the CCSC campus on Saturday, May 30th. These areas should be avoided on May 30th. This Notice is being posted on location, and posted on our school website as required by law.
