It is the goal of Hope Elementary School District (All Campuses) to implement IPM by focusing on long-term prevention or suppression of pests through accurate pest identification, by frequent monitoring for pest presence, by applying appropriate action levels, and by making the habitat less conducive to pests using sanitation and mechanical and physical controls. Pesticides that are effective will be used in a manner that minimizes risks to people, property, and the environment, and only after other options have been shown ineffective.
It is the intent of the Elementary School District to minimize the use of chemical pesticides. When their use cannot be avoided, we will strive to utilize the least toxic appropriate method.
