As required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA), this is the annual notification of the presence of asbestos-containing materials in certain Clark County School District (CCSD) buildings. Asbestos is a common name given to a group of mineral fibers that occur naturally and have been incorporated into a variety of construction products such as wall and ceiling plasters and floor tile. These materials pose no risk to health, unless they are disturbed in such a way that asbestos fibers become airborne, are inhaled, and get deposited within the lungs.
This notice is a general notification and is not meant to give specific information about an individual location. An Asbestos Management Plan has been developed for each CCSD location which identifies the location, type, and amount of asbestos-containing material and also describes action taken to prevent exposure. The site-specific plan is available for review online at environmental.ccsd.net.
CCSD is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, and visitors. For more information, you may visit the Environmental Services’ webpage at environmental.ccsd.net or call 702-799-0987.
