No asbestos-containing materials were used in the construction of the new District Office, St. Matthews K-8 School, or the Sandy Run K-8 School. Furthermore, no asbestos-containing materials were used in the renovations to Calhoun County High School; however, AHERA requires the preparation of an O&M plan for each school building. The plans are available for inspection during regular business hours as required by the AHERA Rule. The O&M Plans are on file at the CCPS District Office located at 125 Herlong Avenue, St. Matthews, SC 29135.
