IPM Notification of Pesticide Application
Vancouver School District is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning, working and playing environment for students, staff, families and users of district properties. To minimize potential risks in using pesticides, the district adopted an Integrated Pest Management Policy (“IPM Policy”) on March 25, 2002. This Policy meets or exceeds the requirements of RCW 17.21 (Washington Pesticide Application Act). Details of the policy and accompanying regulation can be found on the Vancouver School District home page.
The IPM Policy is intended to keep vegetation and animal pests at acceptable levels in environmentally safe and economical ways. The policy directs that the district use an ecological approach to controlling unwanted vegetation, noxious weeds and problem animal pest populations. Reports of pest problems are submitted by the school building staff to the district Maintenance Department for corrective action. Maintenance personnel provide guidance to the building on non-toxic preventative measures that generally will eliminate the problem. If the pest infestation persists, qualified pesticide applicators will use the least toxic chemical to eliminate the pest.
At McLoughlin Middle School the district has found it necessary to make an application of pesticides as noted below. This application will be scheduled to eliminate or minimize exposure to building occupants. The product selected for use meets district policy as a “least toxic pesticide option”.
