Sunnyvale ISD Pest Management Program Patron Notification
Sunnyvale ISD follows an adopted Integrated Pest Management Policy statement. The policy is based on generally accepted tenets of integrated pest management tactics that are compatible with human health and environmental protection, proper identification of pest problems monitoring programs to determine when pests are present or when pest problems are severe enough to justify corrective action, use of non-chemical management strategies whenever practical, and preferential use of least-toxic chemical controls when pesticides are needed. State regulations followed by the district include requirements to notify students, staff and parents of pending pesticide applications; keeping proper pesticide application records including copies of labels and Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) for all pesticides used on school facilities; adherence to a 12-hour waiting interval between pesticide application and student occupation of treated facilities; use of least hazardous pesticides according to the pesticide approval process for schools. No person shall store or apply pesticide on school district property without an appropriate pesticide applicator’s license. Administrators, teachers, coaches, custodians or any district employees who store and use unapproved pesticides are in violation of SISD policy and are subject to fines and penalties administered by the Texas Structural Pest Control Board, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Federal Insecticide/Fungicide and Rodenticide Act.
