  • Integrated Pest Management: As required by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation and the California Healthy Schools Act, Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District maintains an Integrated Pest Management program that focuses on long-term prevention or suppression of pest problems. Pests will be controlled to protect the health and safety of students and staff, maintain a productive learning environment and maintain the integrity of school buildings and grounds. It is the goal of the District to provide for the safest and lowest risk approach to control pest problems while protecting students, staff, the environment and property.
