2021-2022 Annual Notification: Availability of the Asbestos Management Plan, November 2021.
In compliance with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), an asbestos re-inspection of
Asbestos Containing Building Material (ACBM) was performed in each
school. The inspection findings are in the Asbestos Re-inspection Binder and

The EPA requires a re-inspection of the asbestos materials every three years,
and a periodic surveillance every six months.
The Chatham Central School District will notify the public and building
occupants of the availability by use of the district web page and posting this
notice in all school buildings.
The Asbestos Management Plan for the Chatham Central School District is

Dardess Elementary School remains 50 Woodbridge Ave. while Chatham High School is now 54 Woodbridge Ave., Chatham Middle school is 21 Woodbridge Ave., and the Bus Garage is 21 Library Place, all in Chatham.
Please be sure to make note of these addresses. We will also be posting signage with this information in highly visible areas in and around our buildings. These addresses are for 911 purposes only, such as reporting the location of an emergency. Our business (mailing) address remains the same at 50 Woodbridge Ave., Chatham, NY 12037 for all four buildings.
