Public Notification

Some policies with required notification components are shared in other documents such as the Code of Student Conduct or individual school handbooks.

In the past, asbestos was used extensively in building materials because of its insulating, sound absorbing, and fire retarding capabilities. Virtually any building constructed before the late 1970s contained some asbestos. Intact and undisturbed, asbestos materials generally do not pose a health risk. Asbestos materials, however, can become hazardous when, due to damage or deterioration over time, they release fibers. If the fibers are inhaled, they can lead to health problems such as cancer and asbestosis.  

Bedford County Public Schools facilities were inspected in June 2017 by the EI Group, Inc. using a licensed asbestos inspector. Their inspections determined the physical condition and potential exposure hazard of each material known, or assumed, to contain asbestos. The results of that inspection are filed with the asbestos management plans for each site. The management plans are also on file at the School Administration Building, 310 S. Bridge Street, Bedford, VA 24523 and are available to review during regular business hours. For further information, please contact Charles Santore at (540) 586-1045, x10271 or Troy Doss at (540) 586-1045, Ext. 10239.


School divisions must provide parents/guardians and adult students annual notice of their rights to inspect and review education records, amend education records, consent to the disclosure of personally identifiable information in education records, how to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, and the categories of information that they have designated as directory information.
