As a parent what do you need to
know about School IPM ?
If you have a child in:
you must receive a notification
whenever a pesticide application is made outdoors on the school
- a public or private school,
- or in a licensed daycare center,
- or in a school age child care program,
Children's and Families' Protection Act also requires schools/
licensed daycares and school age child care programs to develop
Integrated Pest Management plans and submit them to the Department
of Agricultural Resources. Find out if your child's school
has submitted their IPM plan, and view the plan, under the
"Locate a Plan" link on the sidebar or below. If
your child's school or daycare center is not listed, check
with the administrator to see why. It is possible that they
are out of compliance with the law.
Learn about other requirements,
such as when the school/ daycare center/ school age child
care program is required to notify you when pesticide applications
are being made.
