During the 2016-17 school year, asbestos abatement was conducted at the Olympic High School campus in preparation for capital projects to be done during summer of 2017 and throughout the 2017-18 school year.

Westside Alternative High School and the Science Kit Center also underwent asbestos removal in preparation for demolition and relocation to Barker Creek Community School and the Operations Service Center respectively.

Anticipated projects for the 2017-18 school year include the required six-month periodic surveillance which will be conducted during the winter and summer breaks.

During 2017-18 there may also be removal of asbestos containing materials at the Transportation building in preparation for demolition; that department is being relocated to the new Operations Service Center.
