The Healthy Schools Act of 2000 was signed into law on September 2000 (Assembly Bill No. 2260). This law requires schools to provide parents, guardians and school employees with notification of expected pesticides used in their school sites, and requires the Department of Pesticide Regulation to promote the voluntary adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in California schools. Most provisions of the law took effect January 1, 2001. This notification identifies the active ingredient(s) in each pesticide product and includes the internet address http://apps.cdpr.ca.gov/schoolipm/ for further information.
Parents/guardians may register for prior notification of pesticide applications at the school site on your Parent/Student Annual Notification form (found in the Parent/Student Handbook). Employees of Magnolia School District may register for prior notification of pesticide applications at school sites by contacting the Maintenance, Operations, Transportation and Facilities office to set up an appointment to register.
