Pesticide Use at Schools
All pesticide applications to school property (both buildings and grounds
used for the instruction and recreation of students) must be performed by certified
and licensed applicators or employees operating under the direct supervision of those certified and licensed applicators. This includes any pesticide applications by school
staff (including teachers), hired contractors (pest management professionals,
pest control operators, lawn care professionals, etc.), and volunteers working
for the school or the school's athletic department. Pesticide "use" includes
any application, mixing loading, storage, transportation, or disposal of pesticides
at the school.
