WASHINGTON — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its strategic plan for school IPM, detailing the Agency's role reducing pest and pesticide risks to children and staff. EPA has committed to creating a clearinghouse for existing tools and information, increasing demand for school IPM by working with state agencies, school-related professional associations and others, and creating a center of expertise for school IPM based in Dallas, Texas. The Agency has also committed to growing four stakeholder-led working groups that have been advocating for and supporting adoption of high-level IPM in schools since 2007 with funding from EPA, the USDA Regional IPM Centers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others. EPA's strategic plan can be downloaded here.
