Healthy Schools Act and IPM
MANDATORY HEALTHY SCHOOLS ACT TRAINING
The Healthy Schools Act (HSA) requires anyone applying a pesticide (including antibacterial sprays and wipes) 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, trainers 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 can contact Kurt Walling at STSIG for a personal training at your site.
