Baron Bits for the week of September 14th:

CLick on the link below in order to see this week's edition of Baron Bits and the calendar of events.

As you know, school/family communication is vital.  I have made this a goal of mine for the 2014-15 school year.  If you have not taken advantage of the multiple communication sources, I encourage you to do so.

Facebook (Amelia High School)… I have begun to post morning announcements each day by 9:00.This is a great way for parents and OAKS students to not miss a beat regarding important dates and information.

Twitter (AHS Barons):  Twitter is a great way to see the scores form our sporting events and to get information regarding upcoming events

Battlebots kicks off at Amelia!

On August 28th, nearly 30 students assembled after school to kick off the 2014-2015 Amelia Baronbots season.  Many of these students will be competing in the Xtremebots competition at Wright State’s Nutter Center on Saturday, November 22nd.

The Xtremebots league is based upon a fifteen pound weight limit, testing the students’ abilities to create a competitive unit in a small package.  The judges score the matches against other schools based upon (1) driving skills, (2) aggressiveness, and (3) damage to the other battlebot.  Perhaps an entry named “Bot Droppings” says it all!  The double elimination matches last all day and end with a grand champion.

Amelia Baronbots is open to all Amelia students after school, meeting in Mr. Paul’s Project Lead the Way Engineering Lab.


ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

ANNUAL NOTICE

ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

 

An October 22, 1986, President Reagan signed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA, Public Law 99-519).  The act required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop regulations for addressing asbestos in public and private elementary and secondary schools.  On October 30, 1987, the EPA published the Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools Rule (40 CFR Part 763 Subpart E).  This rule stipulated, and our district has complied with, the following key requirements:

  • Identification of asbestos-containing materials in all school buildings.
  • Development and implementation of asbestos management plans for each school.
  • Regular surveillance and reinspections of the condition of asbestos in the buildings.
  • Designation and training of a person to oversee asbestos activities within the district and to ensure compliance with the regulations.

This memorandum is to advise you that asbestos management plans for the district schools were developed following the EPA ruling and subsequently approved by the State of Ohio, Department of Health.  These plans are regularly updated and are available for you to review.

Should you have any questions regarding this program or would like to review an asbestos management plan, please contact the Board of Education offices during normal business hours.
