Integrated Pest Management Program (IPM)

Dansville Schools has adopted an Integrated Pest Management program. Inherent with this are the District’s efforts to reduce pesticide use as much as possible. While it may occasionally be necessary to apply a pesticide, these will only be used as a last resort. This program does not rely on routine pesticide applications to resolve problems. We use various techniques such as habitat alteration, sanitation, mechanical means, exclusion, etc. to prevent pests from becoming a problem.

You will receive advanced notice of the application of a pesticide, other than bait or gel formulations, at your child’s school. This advance notice of the application will be given 48 hours before the application. The law requires us to do this notification by using two methods. The first method required by the law is the posting at entrances to your child’s school. The second method we are going to use is the posting in a common area located by the main office of the school. Parents are also entitled to receive this notice by first-class United
States mail postmarked at least 3 days before the application. If you would like to be notified by mail, please contact the Operations Department at the following number 517-623-6120 ext. 238. Please give your name, mailing address and what school your child attends.

In an emergency (for example, bees nest), pesticides may be applied without prior notice, but you will be provided notice following any such application.

You may review our IPM program or pesticide application records for your child’s school by calling or e-mailing Dansville Schools, the District’s Director of Operations at phone number 517-623-6120 ext. 238 or e-mail address bevierd@dansville.org. This number or e-mail may also be used when school is not in regular session.

Asbestos Management Plan Available For Review By Parents, Teachers, And Employees

Our school district has conducted an extensive asbestos survey of all of our buildings. These surveys are continuously done by a professional firm who also updates the records and conducts a six-month inspection. Based on the findings of this inspection, a comprehensive management plan was drafted. This plan details the response actions that the district will be taking regarding asbestos containing materials found in our buildings.

This plan is available for inspection at our offices without cost or restriction during normal business hours. If you desire to have a personal copy, it will be supplied to you within five working days at a cost of 30 cents per page by contacting the Superintendent’s Office at 1264 Adams Street, Dansville, Michigan, 48819.

We have endeavored to make our school a safe place in which students can learn. Our procedures for dealing with this legislation reflect that concern. Please let us know if we can answer any questions.
