Abstract The possibility that asbestos (1332214) had been used in the insulating material at St. Marys Elementary School in Alexandria, Kentucky was investigated. Samples of the material were collected at several areas in the school where there was evidence of roof leaks and the ceiling insulation had begun to deteriorate. All four samples collected in classrooms and hallways were positive by both transmission electron microscope analysis and an energy dispersive X-ray analyzer for fibrous chrysotile (12001295) asbestos. The quantities of fibrous asbestos were estimated to be greater than 10%. At two locations, the insulation was found to be excessively friable due to roof leakage. The author recommends that the St. Marys Elementary School consider the development of a plan to either remove, replace, or seal in place the insulation material containing the asbestos fibers.
