California addresses pesticide applications near schools

California has adopted regulations that address agricultural pesticide applications near public K-12 schools and licensed child day care centers (collectively referred to as school sites).

These regulations provide minimum distance standards for certain agricultural pesticide applications near school sites and require annual notifications to school sites.

The goal is to reduce the chances of unintended pesticide exposure to children and increase communication between growers, County Agricultural Commissioners and school sites.

The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has a separate School and Child Care IPM Program to address pesticide applications at school sites.
