    A .INTRODUCTION

      In compliance with the Act Protecting Children and Families from Harmful Pesticides, C.K. Brennan on 7/21/2017 5:56:00 AM has prepared the following indoor IPM plan. By centralizing all of the information about this facilityís pest management practices the plan serves as a guide to direct this facilityís IPM coordinator,  Jason Parenteau , about pest control and pesticide use.

      This plan describes the pest management practices for indoor areas of the C.K. Brennan and clearly states itís pesticide use policies.

      A copy of the plan has been filed with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), and at least one printed copy must be kept on site and made available to the public upon request.

      The tasks set before an IPM committee are to:

    •  
    • Develop an IPM plan. The IPM plan is in essence, a document that describes the organization and implementation of IPM on school grounds.
    •  
    • Evaluate progress of the IPM program.
    •  
    • Communicate about IPM - Facilitate communication within the school about IPM practices.

    • Provide notification to parents about pesticide use.

      The INDOOR committee members selected for the C.K. Brennan are listed below:
      1) Jason Parenteau (Indoor IPM Coordinator)
      2) Fred Souza
      3) Andre Faria
      4) Jason Parenteau


    D. COMMUNICATING IPM WITHIN THE FACILITY

      The Pest Management Professional communicates with the IPM coordinator of the facility. The IPM coordinator then posts this information in a common viewing area dedicated to the subject of integrated pest management. In addition, the IPM coordinator also communicates information to the staff supervisors who then distribute the information to all the staff and occupants concerned.

      Staff/Students communicate with their supervisors or teachers who then pass information onto the IPM coordinator.


    E. EDUCATION AND TRAINING OF FACILITY OCCUPANTS & STAFF

    • Teachers and custodial staff will receive IPM training.
    • Training will cover: Sanitation, reporting procedures, as well as proper trash removal.
    • Training will take place annually.
    • Chris Kinzle will present the training annually, the training will then be evaluated by Jason Parenteau.
    • Food is allowed only in designated areas, food and drink is not allowed in the gymnasiums or the auditoriums. Students are reminded not to store food in lockers.


    F. INDOOR MONITORING

      The IPM committee will evaluate the plan quarterly. When pests are present, C.K. Brennan has chosen an INDOOR monitoring schedule that consists of monthly inspections. When pests are absent the INDOOR monitoring schedule will consist of monthly inspections.

      The following technique will be used to monitor for pests:  Reports from facility personnel (pest reporting forms) would prompt the IPM coordinator to setup monitoring traps, which would be used to identity the pest and determine its abundance.
