Pest Management

          PESTICIDE USE AND YOUR RIGHTS

 

The Healthy Schools Act of 2000 (as amended by Assembly Bill 2865, Chapter 865, Statutes of 2006) requires that all schools and child day care centers provide parents or guardians of children who are enrolled at the facility with annual written notification of expected pesticide use at schools and day care centers. Attached to this letter is a list of pesticides that may be used during the school year. The notification will identify the active ingredient or ingredients in each pesticide product and will include the Department of Pesticide Regulation’s School Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Web site (http://www.schoolipm.info) for further information on pesticides and their alternatives.  

 

Parents or guardians may request prior notification of individual pesticide applications at the school or day care center by registering with their students’ school site. Beginning September 1, 2016, people listed on this registry will be notified at least 72 hours before pesticides are applied. If you would like to be notified every time a    pesticide is applied, then you may obtain a copy of the registration form at your local school site.

Some materials such as Baits and non-toxic alternatives do not require notification. Information on all products approved for use is available at each school site.

 

If you have any questions, please contact Danny Alexander, IPM Coordinator (916) 997-0820 or email to dalexander@rdusd.org
