Every building owned or used by the Hardin County Board of Education has recently been inspected for friable and non-friable asbestos containing building materials. An inspector fully accredited by the State of Kentucky and the Division for Air Quality conducted this. The information collected/developed during this inspection will be included within the Management Plan located in each principal’s office and may be reviewed during normal business hours.
The Hardin County Board of Education has implemented a program of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in order to control pests in a way that minimizes economic, health and environmental risks. All individuals applying pesticides will be properly certified in keeping with applicable legal requirements. You will be notified twenty-four hours in advance of a planned pesticide application or as soon as possible when an emergency application is necessary.
