This report describes the experience of the New York City (NYC) Board of Education and their asbestos-in-schools program. The program objectives were to: (a) identify current and potential asbestos exposures in NYC public schools, (b) evaluate the seriousness of these asbestos exposures, (c) recommend appropriate abatement action, and (d) oversee the completion of the recommended action. A survey of all school buildings was completed and priority problem areas were identified. Major abatement activities were scheduled for summer recess periods and completed as funds became available.
