Section 3.6 Chemicals and Toxic Materials

Policy Statement:

You may contact the school if you have questions or concerns regarding building safety.  A copy of our school's Management Plan is available upon request.


Pesticide Use on School Grounds

The school will minimize the use of pesticides, particularly on the interior of the facility, by using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques.  A record will be maintained at the school office of pesticide use by third party contractors as well as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for the chemicals applied on the premises.


In 1986 Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). This law required

all schools K-12 to be inspected for asbestos containing building materials (ACBM).  The law further requires an asbestos management plan to be in place by July 1989.  The facilities of the American Preparatory Academy do not have any asbestos products used in their planning or construction; therefore, no operations and maintenance programs or future inspections are required.
