Integrated Pest Management

  • Evanston Township High School District 202 is committed to having Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices in place that use reduced risk pest control methods with a preference for non-chemical control measures. Our IPM was developed under existing Board Policy 4:160, Environmental Quality of Buildings and Grounds, and operates in accordance to state law under the guidance provided by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

    Those who are interested may opt-in to receive written email notification 48-hours prior to the application of any chemical pest control materials (herbicides/pesticides) on school grounds/fields. Chemical pest control materials are not applied to the interior of ETHS. If there is an immediate threat to health or property that requires treatment before notification can be sent out, those who opt-in will receive notification as soon as practical.

    To opt-in to receive chemical pest control notifications subject to the notification requirements, complete the following form:

    Pest Control Treatment Notification Request Form

    Notification is valid for one school year only. Please opt-in at the beginning of each school year for continued notification.

    Harmonized Materials Standards safety information is available upon request by contacting the ETHS Director of Operations and  Sustainability at 847-424-7308.
