    A .INTRODUCTION

      In compliance with the Act Protecting Children and Families from Harmful Pesticides, Kiddie Academy of Stoughton on 9/20/2016 4:14:00 PM has prepared the following indoor IPM plan. By centralizing all of the information about this facility’s pest management practices the plan serves as a guide to direct this facility’s IPM coordinator,  David Rudnick , about pest control and pesticide use.

      This plan describes the pest management practices for indoor areas of the Kiddie Academy of Stoughton and clearly states it’s 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.

      Objectives
      The objectives of the integrated pest management program conducted at the Kiddie Academy of Stoughton are listed below.

    •  
    • Reduce children’s exposure to pesticides and pesticide residues whenever possible.
    •  
    • Manage pests that may occur on facilities to prevent interference with the learning environment of the students.
    •  
    • Provide the safest playing or athletic surfaces possible.

      In light of these objectives, the Kiddie Academy of Stoughton has selected the following as it’s IPM policy statement:


    B.POLICY STATEMENT

      It is the policy of this school to implement Integrated Pest Management procedures to control structural and landscape pests and minimize exposure of children, faculty, and staff to pesticides.


    C.IPM COMMITTEE

      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.
    •  
    • Assist in development of contract specifications.
    •  
    • Provide notification to parents about pesticide use.

      The INDOOR committee members selected for the Kiddie Academy of Stoughton are listed below:
      1) David Rudnick (Indoor IPM Coordinator)
      2) Amy Peltz
      3) David  Rudnick
      4) Michael Modist


    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 in writing and leave this information in a common “drop box” for the IPM coordinator to review and pass onto the Pest Management Professional if necessary.


    E. EDUCATION AND TRAINING OF FACILITY OCCUPANTS & STAFF

    • Custondial staff, food service workers, building and grounds maintenace personnel, teachers
    • Training will cover pest-reporting and procedures and pest prevention strategies
    • Yearly training seminar on IPM for all facility staff
    • The training will be run by the director of Kiddie Academy and or Mike Modist from City Service this training will take place Semiannually and evaluated by filling out the pest control form
    • We will not be having any additional activities on the property


    F. INDOOR MONITORING

      The IPM committee will evaluate the plan semiannually. When pests are present, Kiddie Academy of Stoughton has chosen an INDOOR monitoring schedule that consists of daily inspections. When pests are absent the INDOOR monitoring schedule will consist of weekly 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.
