Davenport Community School district meets all EPA and OSHA regulations in regards to asbestos management in schools. Each building has a current Management Plan, which is available for inspection at any time. A comprehensive copy of all building management plans is also available at the Department of Operations. The District actively pursues the removal of asbestos containing materials. All newly installed building material are specified and certified as non-asbestos. The district has a periodic surveillance program and is re-inspected every 3 years by a certified asbestos inspector.
Indoor Air Quality
Good indoor air quality contributes to a favorable learning environment for students, productivity for teachers and staff, and a sense of comfort, health, and well-being for all school occupants. The District manages indoor air quality concerns through the use of the Environmental Protection Agency’s “Indoor Air Quality Tools for Schools” program. Our objectives are to proactively prevent indoor air quality problems, and quickly responding to any problems that may arise. Concerns regarding indoor air quality should be directed to the building Principal, head custodian, or contacting the Operations Department @ 386-3351.
Material safety data sheets
Material safety data sheets, or MSDSs, are provided to the District by manufacturers for all hazardous materials purchased by the District. MSDSs are important as they provide us with detailed information regarding:
- Potential hazardous effects
- Physical and chemical characteristics
- Recommendations for appropriate protective measures.
A compilation of all MSDSs is available for review at each school’s office, as well as at the District’s Department of Operations 1008 West Kimberly Road.
