The District will not use any pesticides known to have cancer causing agents, or causing damage to the reproductive or nervous system. This restriction applies to pesticide applications by district staff and contractor alike. Only those pesticides listed on the District’s authorized list will be utilized to control District pest and then will be applied only when all other less toxic control measures have failed to reach successful results. There will be no pesticide applications during regular school hours, unless the presence of that pest is deemed more dangerous than the treatment.
