Asbestos Management Plan

The district works diligently to maintain compliance with federal and state law governing asbestos in school buildings. A copy of the district’s asbestos management plan is available in the central administrative office. If you have any questions or would like to examine the district’s plan in more detail, please contact  the district’s designated asbestos coordinator: 

Pat Garrett Asbestos Designated Person / Superintendent  PO Box 63 Walnut Springs, TX 76690; Phone: 254-797-2132   pat.garrett@walnutspringsisd.net

Pest Management Plan 
​The district is required to follow integrated pest management (IPM) procedures to control pests on school grounds. Although the district strives to use the safest and most effective methods to manage pests, including a variety of non-chemical control measures, periodic indoor and outdoor pesticide use is sometimes necessary to ensure a safe, pest-free school environment.All pesticides used are registered for their intended use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and are applied only by certified pesticide applicators. Except in an emergency, signs will be posted 48 hours before indoor application. All outdoor applications will be posted at the time of treatment, and signs will remain until it is safe to enter the area.Parents who have questions or who want to be notified of the times and types of applications prior to pesticide application inside their child’s school assignment area may contact  the district’s IPM coordinator.
