Radon Phase 1 Retests Completed

The Amherst County Public Schools have completed Phase 1 of the radon testing outlined in the public information sheet released earlier in March 2017 (posted earlier on the ACPS homepage).  Phase 1 is the retesting of classrooms and spaces within various schools where the school division does not have full documentation, or there were slightly elevated levels of radon detected earlier.  Those retests have been completed following established protocols set in state and federal guidelines.  Phase 2 will involve the testing of all other rooms and spaces as the new HVAC equipment comes on line.
