On California Safe Schools Coalition’s 19th Anniversary, it Recognizes L.A. Unified School District Adoption of Groundbreaking Pesticide Policy
LOS ANGELES, Calif., Sept. 7, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- California Safe Schools Coalition (CSS) commends the pioneering achievement of Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the second largest school district in the nation, spanning 740 square miles, 28 cities and more than 1,000 sites, for early adoption of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policy in 1999. CSS was formed in 1998, after its founder's child was accidentally sprayed by pesticides by a Los Angeles Unified gardener on his way into an LAUSD elementary school, a pivotal event for LAUSD's IPM Policy formation.
