Maintenance & Operations Management Plans

Asbestos Management Plan

In 1987 Congress enacted the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) to establish requirements for the management of asbestos in public and nonprofit elementary and secondary schools.  The act set standards for training, maintenance, abatement, inspections, surveillance, notifications, and record keeping.  For all schools containing asbestos, periodic surveillance inspections of known or assumed asbestos-containing materials is conducted at six-month intervals to determine any change in condition, along with complete re-inspections by an accredited inspector every three years.  
The Asbestos Management Plan for Galt Joint Union Elementary School District (the District) is used to identify locations within the district that have been identified as having or may contain asbestos containing materials.  Hard copies of the asbestos management plan for each site can be viewed during regular business hours in the District Office when requested by calling 209-744-4545 ext.345. 
The District’s most recent re-inspection was conducted by Entek Consulting Group, Inc. on April 14, 2022, at Valley Oaks Elementary, Fairsite Elementary and the Bus Garage. This re-inspection data has been incorporated into the District’s Management Plan.  The District is required to perform six-month surveillance inspections of these buildings annually in April and October.

Integrated Pest Management Plan

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an approach to pest management that focuses on long-term pest prevention and takes advantage of all pest management strategies using pesticides only when absolutely necessary. Using IPM techniques saves money, time, and minimizes potential pesticide exposure to people and the environment.

The IPM Coordinator is a school district employee who helps to ensure that the district is meeting the requirements of the California Healthy Schools Act (HSA), including creating an IPM Plan. An IPM Plan provides information about how pests are managed at each school district and includes a list of proposed pesticides for the school year.
