Description of the Project

The Stop School Pests project was initiated to address the need for a recognized, standardized, peer-reviewed national IPM training program for school communities.

The program is a collaborative effort that includes extension, university, government, private and non-profit organizations and individuals (see Committee Members).

Stop School Pests IPM training materials include on-line and in-class training materials. Learning lessons for all school community stakeholder groups exist including: school administrators, facility managers, pest management professionals/school IPM coordinators, landscape and grounds staff, custodians, maintenance staff, nurses, food service staff and teachers. Proficiency exams will be used to allow successful students to print certificates of completion and/or certificates of accomplishment (if a high score is achieved). Materials for in-class training will be housed on-line and may be downloaded free of charge. Certificate templates and a training day guide will be available on-line. In-class materials will be formatted using PowerPoint and instructors are permitted to modify the materials for their own purposes.
