Asbestos in Schools Education Outreach Campaign
EPA will continue a campaign to re-educate Local Educational Authorities (LEAs) on the federal requirements for asbestos in schools and the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act(AHERA). The Agency is partnering on this effort with the National Parent-Teacher Association(PTA), the National Education Association(NEA), the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), and the Department of Education. Part of this education campaign includes distribution of updated outreach materials on asbestos in schools and AHERA compliance, with versions in English and in Spanish, where appropriate. EPA is also working with other federal agencies, such as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, to distribute information to tribes.
