Annual Notification of Asbestos Containing Materials
Asbestos is an issue we have been dealing with for many years.  Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA) was enacted by Congress to determine the extent of and develop solutions for any problems schools may have with asbestos. 

In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in September 1988 we performed inspections of our school buildings for asbestos containing building materials.  The inspection findings and asbestos management plans have been on file in the school administrative office since that time.  

The EPA requires us to perform re-inspection of the asbestos materials every three years.  An accredited inspector/management planner from ATC Associates Inc., Omaha, Nebraska, performed the re-inspection of our district in July of 2007 and issued a report regarding the results. 

ATC Associates Inc. has been contracted to provide environmental services, which includes maintaining compliance with Federal regulations regarding asbestos and other regulated environmental concerns.
The results of the re-inspection, as well as the last six month surveillance are on file in the Management Plan in the school’s administrative office.  Everyone is welcome to view these anytime during normal school hours    (M-F 8:30a.m. to 4:00p.m.). Our Asbestos Program Manager, Dana Neal, is available to answer any questions about asbestos in our buildings at 944-5181, or you may contact Gary Collins, ATC Associates, Inc. at 402-697-9747.

Home School Assistance Program
In recognition of alternatives to education outside the formal school setting, the Lawton-Bronson Community School District is committed to providing a Home School Assistance Program (HSAP) for its constituents.  The program will assist students receiving competent private instruction by providing a licensed instructor to assist the family in the education of the student.  The program will also provide curriculum materials to support the home schooled student.  If you are home schooling your children and interested in our program, call Mr. Chad Shook at 712-944-5183.
