    Response Actions Completed:     Removed wood plank, cork, felt paper and mastic flooring material from the gym.

                                                                Removed asbestos floor tile and mastic from Book Store.

    In addition, as required by AHERA (EPA), reinspections are conducted by accredited inspectors every three years since the implementation of our management plan.
