    Integrated Pest Management
    Pesticide Use Notification

    New York State Education Law requires school districts to inform staff and persons in parental relations of pesticide use in district buildings and on district grounds. The pesticide notification process consists of three parts:

    1. Initial Annual Notification — At the beginning of each school year all staff and persons in parental relations will be informed that there is potential pesticide use at school facilities (buildings and grounds); that the school district will maintain a list of individuals wishing to receive notification 48 hours prior to actual pesticide use. The list will be valid for the current academic school year, only one submission is required for the period July 1 – June 30; and contact information for the district Integrated Pest Management. Some pest management methods use traps rather than sprayed pesticides. The lower toxicity of traps allows containment of pesticides and the use of traps DO NOT require 48-hour notice.

    2. 48-Hour Prior Notification — Staff and persons in parental relations may ask to be notified 48 hours in advance of pesticide use in facilities where they regularly work or have children regularly attending classes. The District must keep a list of these individuals and provide them with written notification at least 48 hours before certain pesticide usage; giving date, location and name of pesticide used.

    3. Interim (Summary) Notifications — Within two days of the end of winter and spring recess, and within 10 days of the end of the school year, all staff and persons in parental relations must be notified of pesticide use since the last notification.

    During the current school year it may be necessary to use pesticides at the East Aurora Union Free School District facilities to meet pest management goals. If you have any questions about the Integrated Pest Management Program or pesticide use at the East Aurora Union Free School District, contact the Buildings and Grounds Department at 687-2305.

    School districts are required to keep a list of individuals wishing to be notified at least 48 hours before pesticide use at the facilities in which they work or have a child attending classes. If you wish to have your name placed on the 48-hour pesticide notification list, please complete the form found at https://www.eastauroraschools.org/Pesticide and return it to the address listed. The list will be valid for the current academic school year. Only one (1) submission is required for the period July 1 – June 30.
