Fort Knox Community Schools
Parents and legal guardians of children attending Fort Knox Community Schools are receiving notification of the availability of each school’s Asbestos Management Plan.
Annual notification is a federal requirement, said Tim Adkisson, FKCS’ Facilities Operations Specialist.
“Each school’s plan is available in the school for sponsors’ inspection,” Adkisson said. “The plan includes the location, condition, accessibility and any response actions that have been taken on all asbestos contained in the school building.”
In addition, Adkisson keeps a master copy of the schools’ plans and all related asbestos correspondence for inspection in his office in Bldg. 7474A, Mississippi St.
