School IPM Electronic Notification List | SUBSCRIBE |

School IPM Announcements are informational updates relating to school IPM and the Healthy Schools Act of 2000. They are issued periodically by the California School IPM Program and include items of interest to school personnel, parents, pest control businesses working with schools, and the general public. School IPM announcements typically cover trainings, meetings, workshops, conferences, new IPM resources, and minor news items related to school IPM.

California Department of Education (CDE) Contact

Portions of the Healthy School Act of 2000 are written into the California Education Code and therefore compliance is the responsibility of each local school district. Each School district is required to appoint an IPM coordinator to ensure compliance.

The Education Code (sections Article 4, Section 1708-17613) contains the following topics:
  • Notification of planned pesticide use
  • Registry of parents requiring individual notifications
  • Recordkeeping of pesticide applications by schools
  • Posting of pesticide application warning signs
