August 2013 The Healthy Schools Act of 2000/AB2260 contains the following procedures to control pests and minimize exposure of children, faculty, and staff to pesticides/herbicides: • Warning signs will be posted at all entrances to school district property 48 hours prior to regular
pesticide/herbicide applications and will remain posted for 72 hours after the application.

on the attached page. Additional information on these products and their alternatives may be obtained at the California Department of Pesticide regulation web site,
• The selection and use of the least hazardous methods and materials effective for the control of
targeted pests and weeds will be implemented.
• Non-chemical prevention of pest and weed population is always preferred using such methods as
sanitation, exclusion, and cultural practices.
• Precision targeting of pesticides and herbicides to areas not contacted by or accessible to
students, faculty, and staff will be implemented.
• Application of pesticides/herbicides will only be used “as needed” to correct verified problems. • In the event of an “emergency” application of a pesticide to control a specific and documented
problem, signs will be posted immediately and remain posted for 72 hours following the application procedure.
