a useful tool now, an even more useful tool in the future!.

As you know, numerous localities have chosen to adopt school pesticide
policies or programs that require a school to use integrated pest
management, prohibit the use of toxic pesticide, and/or provide prior
notification of a pesticide application.

Beyond Pesticides/NCAMP has developed a new website
(http://www.ncamp.org/local_school.htm) that identifies a working list
of over 142 localities that are known (or thought) to have policies or
programs regarding integrated pest management, pesticide bans, and

Over the next few months we will continuously update the website and add
links to summaries of the policies,
local contact information, links to websites of grassroots pesticide
activists working on the school program, and a copy of the policy to
this web page - so return to the page regularly for updates.

If you do not see a school on the following list, but know they have a
policy/program in place, please let us know. Also, send us your feedback
on the success or failure of your schools program, so we can make this a
valuable guide to school pesticide policies across the country.

The new webpage is part of Beyond Pesticides/NCAMP report on local
school pesticide policies that we are currently compiling. This report
on local policies will be similar to the "Schooling of State Pesticides
Laws: Review of State Pesticide Laws Regarding Schools" Beyond
Pesticides/NCAMP released in 1999, except this new report will not only
identify where policies and/or programs have been adopted, but also look
into implementation and enforcement of the programs.

For additional information, questions or comments, please don't hesitate
to contact me.
