In the fall of 2000, Governor Davis signed into law the Healthy Schools Act of 2000 (AB 2260). This new law encourages the adoption of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as a way of reducing pesticide use and protecting the health of our children and the environment.
With a grant from the Department of Pesticide Regulation, the Department of Agriculture has embarked on a long-term project to help schools design and implement IPM programs. Information developed in Marin County will serve as a model for other schools in the state.
