Annual Notices for Public
In accordance with federal regulations, Alexandria School District have management plans documenting the location and condition of all known or assumed asbestos containing materials (ACM) in the school building. Every six months, the ACM is visually inspected by licensed Minnesota asbestos inspectors. The Alexandria Schools management plan is available for public inspection at the district office during normal office hours. Jerry Bitzan is the designated person responsible for maintaining the asbestos management plans for the district. He can be reached at (320) 762-2141 ext. 4207 with any questions.
Indoor Air Quality
The Alexandria School District has a written indoor air quality (IAQ) management plan that describes our on-going effort to monitor and improve the air quality in our buildings. Jerry Bitzan is our IAQ coordinator, responsible for seeing that the management plan is implemented to prevent as many IAQ problems as possible and to quickly respond to any IAQ problems that may arise. The plan is available to the public during normal school hours. If you have any questions or concerns regarding indoor air quality, please contact Jerry Bitzan at (320) 762-2141 ext. 4207.
Lead in Water
The Alexandria School District will follow the recommendations of the Minnesota Department of Health’s “Lead Contamination Control in School Drinking Water Guidance Manual.” The Alexandria School District completed lead in water testing of all potable water sources during the 2016-2017 school years. The Alexandria School District followed Minnesota Department of Health’s protocol in the reduction of any water sources found to be above action levels of lead. There are no known sources of water above the recommended action level for lead. Testing will be completed every 5 years. The results of testing are available upon request.
A Minnesota state law went into effect in year 2000 that requires schools to inform parents and guardians if they apply certain pesticides on school property.
Specifically, this law requires schools that apply these pesticides to maintain an estimated schedule of pesticide applications and to make the schedule available to parents and guardians for review or copying.
State law also requires that you be told that the long-term health effects on children from the application of such pesticides or the class of chemicals to which they belong may not be fully understood.
An estimated schedule of pesticide is available at the District Office. Parents of students may request to receive, at their expense, prior notification of pesticide applications made on days other than those specified in the estimated schedule (excluding emergency applications).
