School District Integrated Pest Management Plan

It is the goal of Westside Union School District 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.

Our pest management objectives are:

  • To implement a safe and effective program to protect the health and well-being of students and staff, plus maintain a productive learning environment.
  • Prevent pests from spreading in the schools and minimize pesticide exposure to students, staff, and the public.
