The Illinois Department of Public Health requires special Asbestos Management Plans to be in place and up to date at each K-12 school in Illinois. The University has two K-12 lab schools that fall under these requirements, University High School and Metcalf Elementary School.
The University contracts with a Licensed Asbestos Management Planner to conduct 6 month surveys and 3 year re-inspections as required by the Illinois Department of Public Health. The Management planner and the University Asbestos Program Coordinator work together to oversee all activities pertaining to the Lab School Asbestos Management Plans.
The Asbestos Management Plan includes the following sections
Remaining Asbestos materials report and bulk sample results
Periodic surveillance report to include 6 month surveillance and 3 year re-inspections
