Title IX Notice

Title IX is a federal law which prohibits schools from discriminating on the basis of sex.  In 1971, the Congress of the United States passed this law which ensures that educational programs and activities, including athletic activities, will be open to all students.  Contact your student's principal should you have any questions or wish to obtain further information about complaint procedures.


Section 504 Notice

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provides that no person on the basis of color, race, religion, national origin, or ancestry, shall be discriminated against, excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise subjected to discrimination.  Contact your student's principal should you have any questions or wish to obtain further information about complaint procedures.


Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that each year, district workers and building occupants receive notification about asbestos activities such as response actions and inspections.  The purpose of this correspondence is to meet those requirements and familiarize you with the asbestos-related activities that have been conducted in Flat Rock Community Schools during the past year.


Management Plans

In 1988, Flat Rock Community Schools contracted with an environmental consulting firm to conduct inspections and develop asbestos Management Plans for asbestos-containing material (ACM) within all district-owned buildings. These Management Plans are located in the administrative office of each building and are available to the public for review. A copy of each building management plan is also located at the Maintenance Building.


Surveillance Activities

The AHERA regulation requires periodic surveillance of the condition of ACM every six months.  Flat Rock Community Schools will conduct the next periodic surveillance's in accordance with AHERA. The regulation also requires Re-inspections conducted every three years by Michigan Accredited Inspectors.  Flat Rock Community Schools has contracted with an independent consulting firm, to conduct the Re-inspections. Previous Re-inspections and six month periodic inspections can be located in the building’s Management Plans.


Asbestos Abatement

Flat Rock Community Schools has not performed asbestos abatement activities over the past school year and we do not have any asbestos abatement scheduled for this next school year. It should be noted that, when asbestos abatement is conducted, Flat Rock Community Schools hires a Michigan Licensed Asbestos Abatement Contractor to perform the removal activities and an Environmental Consulting Firm to conduct air sampling during and after the assigned removal in compliance with all applicable regulatory standards.



Flat Rock Community Schools has recently had all asbestos documentation scanned and included on the District’s intranet. This information is available for review.

Flat Rock Community Schools has also recently trained and appointed a new asbestos Designated Person or asbestos administrator, for the District. Mr. John Horvath, Director of Shared Services, will be fulfilling the responsibilities of the asbestos Designated Person in the future. Questions regarding asbestos-related issues can be addressed to Mr. Horvath at (734)535-6512.
