Annual Notifications



As part of Dexter Community Schools’ Integrated Pest Management program, students, parents or guardians have the right to be noti­fied prior to the application of pesticides in the buildings or on the grounds. Whenever possible, the District will post a pesticide application notification on the front page of its website ( forty-eight hours prior to application. To be personally notified prior to the application of pesticides, the student’s parent or guardian must request and return a “Pesticide Prior Notification Request Formto Brian Schuler at the address below. A hard copy of the form may also be obtained from:

Brian Schuler, Facilities Director

734-424-4100 ext. 1201


Please understand that emergencies can arise and that pesticides may be applied without prior notice to parents or guardians. In those cases, parents or guardians who have requested prior notice will be notified after pesticide application. Application of pesticides will be performed only by certified, licensed, or registered applicators where and when required. If a pesticide is applied in a building, students will not occupy the room for a minimum of four hours. A sign will be posted at the building’s primary point of entry 48 hours in advance of the pesticide application. When pesticide is applied to the District grounds, the application will be at least 100 feet away from an occupied classroom. This notice is given pursuant to the requirements under the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act 451.


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that each year, District workers and building occupants receive notification about asbestos activities such as response actions and inspections. The purpose of this correspondence is to meet those requirements and familiarize you with the asbestos related activities that have been conducted in Dexter Community Schools during the last year.

Management Plans

In 1988, Dexter Community Schools contracted with Kemron Environmental, Farmington Hills, to conduct inspections for asbestos containing material (ACM) within all District owned buildings. This information was then compiled into Asbestos Management Plans. In 2007, Dexter Community Schools contracted with another environmental consulting firm, Nova Environmental, Inc. to conduct full inspections and to update Management Plan development in all of our facilities built prior to 1988. These Management Plans are located in the administrative office of each building and are available for review. A copy of each building Management Plan is also located in the Maintenance and Operations office.

Surveillance Activities

The AHERA regulation requires surveillance of the condition of ACM every six months and re-inspections every three years. The three-year periodic surveillance was last conducted in the August 2017. This surveillance activities will be included as part of the building’s Management Plan.

Asbestos Abatement

During the past bond projects, various types of asbestos were removed from some of our buildings. Over the course of the next year, there may be a need to do minimal asbestos abatement within applicable buildings. All documentation regarding future asbestos abatement projects will be available for your review in each building file and at the Buildings and Grounds Office. Air tests will be conducted throughout all phases of future asbestos removal projects at each building. Air samples will be collected and analyzed in accordance with all regulatory agency requirements. Questions regarding asbestos removal projects or any asbestos related issues can be addressed to Facilities Director Brain Schuler at (734) 424-4100, ext. 1201.
