Frequent Questions

Do the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requirements apply to charter schools that provide online elementary and secondary education through learning centers and/or directly in the home?

If the charter school providing online education is considered an elementary or secondary school under relevant state law and the facility where such online education is located qualifies as a “school building” under AHERA, then that same charter school’s learning center would also be covered by the AHERA requirements. Since private homes are not school buildings or facilities under AHERA, they would not be covered by the AHERA requirements.
