INDOOR AIR QUALITY COMPLIANCE
The Indiana Legislature enacted 410 IAC 33 which became effective on May 13, 2011 to give guidance to school corporations for maintaining proper indoor air quality in its facilities. Southwest Dubois County School Corporation has established procedures and practices to adhere to regulations established by 410 IAC 33. Individuals who have questions or concerns regarding indoor air quality issues in a facility operated by Southwest Dubois County School Corporation should contact Superintendent Tim LaGrange at 812-683-3971.
INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Southwest Dubois County School Corporation has established an Integrated Pest Management Program in an attempt to use non-chemical methods to minimize children’s and employee’s exposure to pesticides. In the event that pesticide use is required, the application will be performed when no children are present in the building to be treated.Individuals who would like to be notified when pesticides are to be used in the building their child attends should contact Superintendent Tim LaGrange at 812-683-3971.
The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1987 required compilation of all asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) within the public and private schools (K-12 grades). This compilation was designed to identify not only if the asbestos was present, but its location, amount and condition. Southwest Dubois County School Corporation complied with AHERA by developing and implementing Asbestos Management Plans for all of its school facilities. The AHERA six month periodic surveillance inspections are being conducted by the school corporation and triennial re-inspections are being completed by accredited asbestos inspectors as required. Southridge Middle School and Huntingburg Elementary School do not contain asbestos building materials. The asbestos materials identified in the other buildings of the corporation are non-friable and in good condition. Non-friable asbestos does not represent a health risk. Individuals who have questions concerning the AHERA Program in the Southwest Dubois County School Corporation should contact Superintendent Tim LaGrange at 812-683-3971.
Bus transportation is a privilege and not a right. Transportation is provided to students who live in the Southwest Dubois County School district. Transportation may also be provided for a variety of activities including field trips, co-curricular and extracurricular trips. The bus driver’s main responsibility is to transport students. The bus driver is the sole authority on the bus while students are being transported. School buses are by far the safest form of transportation on the roads. Drivers are expected to make safe transportation their number one priority. Occasionally, a student may misbehave on the bus to the point that it is a distraction to the driver. Prompt action is necessary to ensure the safety of all the students on the bus.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a proper manner at bus stops. The corporation will not enter into disputes involving parents and or students concerning manners that take place prior to students boarding the bus, or after the student has disembarked from the bus on his/her way home.
Bus guidelines are very simple.
- Be prompt. Be at the bus stop at least five minutes before the bus arrives in the morning.
- Be courteous. Talk in a normal tone. Cooperate with the driver. Keep the bus clean.
- Be safe. When boarding or departing the bus and when on the bus.
