The Environmental Protection Agency requires each year that district workers and building occupants receive notification of asbestos removal or abatement activities such as inspections and response actions.This notice serves to inform all parents, teachers, administrators, and all other employees that the six-month surveillance period of all buildings, as required by AHERA, has been completed. The three-year re-inspection, also required by AHERA, was performed in May 2015. The next three-year reinspection will be conducted in May/June 2018. Each building will continue to have a six-month periodic surveillance and a three-year reinspection as required by AHERA. All abatement projects have been performed by licensed asbestos abatement contractors.Any damaged materials containing asbestos, such as floor tile or thermal insulation, found during the inspections has either been corrected or removed by a licensed asbestos abatement contractor. AHERA information is available for public inspection.
All children who enter schools in Michigan are required by state law to be fully vaccinated in accordance with Public Act 368 of 1978, as amended.

Local health departments may set requirements that exceed these minimum requirements.Please contact the school building office your child will be attending for a complete listing of the immunization requirements set forth by law or CLICK HERE. Note: Effective 1/1/2015, parents/guardians must obtain a certified non medical waiver from a local health department.

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (“FERPA”) requires that Bath Community Schools, with certain exceptions, obtain the written consent of parents (or students over 18 years of age) prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from a child’s educational records. CLICK HERE to view your parental FERPA rights.However, Bath Community Schools may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the school district to the contrary in accordance with the school district’s procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow the Bath Community Schools to include this type of information from a child’s education records in certain school publications (for example, a playbill showing a student’s role in a drama production, the annual yearbook, honor roll or other recognition lists, graduation programs, and sports activity sheets showing weight and height of team members).
