Integrated Pest Management (IMP) Plan:
The Healthy Schools Act of 2000 was signed into law in September 2000 and requires that all schools provide parents/guardians or District staff personnel with written notification of expected pesticide use on school sites. The notification will identify the active ingredient or ingredients in each pesticide product and will include the Internet address (http://apps.cdpr.ca.gov/schoolipm) for further information on pesticides and their alternatives.
Attached is the schedule for the 2015-2016 school year. The dates listed on the schedule will be the only dates that pesticides will be used at the sites if necessary. All the pesticide information is included. If use is required, a posting 24 hours in advance is provided, describing the location and type of ingredients to be used, excluding emergency application due to health and safety conditions which require immediate attention. The posting will remain in place for 72 hours after application.
This will be the only notification for this school year.
The Torrance Unified School District uses pesticides only when absolutely necessary to provide a healthy school environment, and will continue to explore new methods as they become available to limit pesticide use. If you have any questions please contact Raul Bravo, Grounds and Operations Supervisor, at (310) 678-4281.
