2018-2019 Lead Testing

As part of ongoing efforts to be open and transparent with our school system community, below you will find the schedule of schools that will conduct lead testing in water sources. This testing in being conducted in compliance with the Testing for Lead in Drinking Water - Public and Nonpublic Schools legislation that was passed in 2017. The legislation requires all elementary schools and all schools built prior to 1988 to be tested.
