Bedford Public Schools utilizes an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to control pests. IPM is a pest management system that utilizes multiple techniques to prevent pests from reaching unacceptable levels or to reduce an existing population to an acceptable level. Pest management techniques emphasize pest exclusion and biological controls. However, as with most pest control programs, pesticides may also be utilized at our facility.

This notice has been provided in compliance with MCL324.8316 and must be provided within 30 days of the beginning of the school year. We are also required to notify you of your right to review the IPM Plan and IPM records. An IPM plan and records are required for pesticide applications inside the school, exclusive of sanitizer, disinfectant, germicide, and anti-microbial applications.

You also have the right to be informed prior to any application of a pesticide in or at the school grounds or buildings during this school year, with the exception of bait, gel, sanitizer, disinfectant, germicide, and anti-microbial applications. In certain emergencies, such as an infestation of stinging insects, pesticides may be applied without prior notice to prevent injury to students, but you will be notified following any such application.

At least 48 hours before an application, advance notification will be given by

1) posting at primary entrance to the facility and
2) posting on district's website

Advance notification signs will be posted at the following commonly used entrances, include but not limited to:
