An integrated pest management system (IPM) approach for controlling insects, rodents, and weeds, which focuses on making an unfavorable habitat for pests by removing food and water sources and eliminating their hiding and breeding places, is used at all District schools and buildings.
Pesticide applications will be made only when the area(s) being treated are unoccupied. These areas will be secured against access as long as necessary.
Any staff member, student, or parent may receive notification of the use of a specific airborne-delivered pesticide by putting his/her name on a voluntary registry located in each school's main office. Notification will be two days prior to an airborne pesticide application. In the event of an extreme emergency where pesticides must be used immediately, notification will be made as soon as possible.
