Safety, Testing and Reports
Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)
Pursuant to the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), the Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools rule requires local education agencies to inspect their school buildings for asbestos-containing building material, prepare asbestos management plans and perform asbestos response actions to prevent or reduce asbestos hazards. Current AHERA three-year inspection reports from 2019 are provided for reporting information.
Comprehensive District and School Safety Plan
California Education Code 32286 requires a Comprehensive School Safety Plan be evaluated and amended by a School Site Council or a School Safety Planning Committee prior to March 1st for the following school year. A "safety plan" is defined as a plan aimed at appropriate strategies and programs that will provide or maintain a high level of school safety and address the school's procedures for complying with existing laws related to school safety. The Comprehensive District and School Safety Plan is designed to be utilized as a school resource for prevention, preparedness, response, recovery planning, and training.
Illness Prevention Program (IIPP)
The LBUSD Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) promotes workplace safety and health, betters morale, increases productivity, and reduces operational costs.
Water Quality Testing at Schools
Recent events in the United States have shown that lead in drinking water remains an on-going public health concern, particularly for children. State Assembly Bill AB746, passed on and signed by the Governor on October 13, 2007, requires public K-12 schools to test all facilities located on public school properties before July 1, 2019. In compliance with water quality testing requirements to ensure drinking water is safe from lead, Laguna Beach Unified School District completed testing requirements for all school sites. Refer to the Drinking Water Quality Assessment Report dated September 29, 2016 for reporting information.
