Christ Lutheran High School admits students of any race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Christ Lutheran High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin in administration of their educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs. Christ Lutheran High School does discriminate in that only Christians or those willing to abide by the expectations of a Christ-centered community are welcome. The school also discriminates in that we believe we are teaching Christianity in all of our classes, and thus only allow Christians to teach at our school. In addition, whenever possible, we prefer that they be members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and graduates of the teacher's colleges operated by our church denomination.
On October 22, 1986, President Reagan signed into law the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act. The law required EPA to develop regulations that provide a comprehensive framework for addressing asbestos problems in public and private elementary and secondary schools. On October 30, 1987, EPA published the Asbestos Containing Material in Schools Rule. This new rule requires all public and private elementary and secondary schools to inspect for friable and non-friable asbestos, develop asbestos management plans that address asbestos hazards in school buildings, and implement response actions in a timely fashion. This rule became effective 12/14/1987. Buckley-Loda Community Unit School District #8 conducted a complete inspection of its facilities in 1988 utilizing the service of Lyle Martin, P.E. The results of this inspection have been included in a management plan. This management plan is available in the administrative offices of Christ Lutheran High School during normal business hours, without cost or restriction, for inspections by representatives of the EPA and the State, the public, including teachers, other school personnel and their representatives, and parents. There may be a reasonable charge for making copies of the management plans. The Buckley-Loda CUSD #8 closed the facility in Buckley on May 31, 1990. The East Central Illinois Lutheran High School Association purchased it on January 10, 1996. A re-inspection is required every three (3) years and was conducted on March 4, 1998 by David J. Roth, MEAD Environmental Associates, Inc., Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The building was subsequently re-inspected on April 28, 2000, May 7, 2003, June 30, 2006 and July 13, 2009. You, as a parent, are encouraged to examine the management plan that affects you child(ren). The purpose of the Federal and State regulations is to protect the health and well being of all persons entering the building of the association for any reason. This association takes very seriously the recommendations made in the management plan. The person in the Association trained to oversee asbestos activities and ensure compliance is Ronald Wagner. As required in the rule, Mr. Wagner is the single contact for the public to obtain information about asbestos-related activities in the Association. You may reach Mr. Wagner at 217-394-2547. If you have further questions, please contact the school office during regular business hours. 217-394-2547
