Integrated Pest Management
In 1999, the Illinois General Assembly passed Public Act 91-0525 which requires school districts to implement an Integrated Pest Management program. Part of this program requires that “schools must provide written notification to parents, guardians, and school employees at least two business days prior to the application of pesticides inside school buildings.”
Antimicrobial agents and baits are excluded from this requirement. At the present time, Hawthorn School District 73 does not apply pesticides on a regular basis. It is the intent of this program to limit the amount and frequency of pesticide use in our schools. On occasion, it may become necessary to apply pesticides. On those occasions, notification will be made via newsletters, bulletins, or other correspondence published by the school district. Any questions regarding the Integrated Pest Management Plan can be directed to Mr. Mike Labbe, Director of Facilities.
Hawthorn School District 73 is in compliance with the EPA Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) regulations. As part of this compliance, a copy of the Asbestos Management Plan can be found in the District Office and the School Office for review. Any questions regarding the Management Plan or review of the records can be directed to Mr. Mike Labbe, Director of Facilities, or Ms. LeeAnn Taylor, Assistant Superintendent of Finance & Business Operations.
