Healthy Schools Act and IPM
MANDATORY HEALTHY SCHOOLS ACT TRAINING
The Healthy Schools Act (HSA) requires anyone applying a pesticide on a schoolsite must annually
complete either a Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) developed training course or a similar
course authorized or approved by DPR. As provided by law, DPR and anyone authorized by DPR must
provide a course that covers integrated pest management (IPM) and the safe use of pesticides, taking
into consideration the unique school setting and children’s health.
The slideshow and materials below are provided as a courtesy. Trainers are responsible for ensuring their training meets all requirements of the Healthy Schools Act. Member districts contact Kurt Walling at STSIG for a personal training at your site.
