This category is required for ANY pesticide applicator that makes pesticide applications in schools or on school property, for New Jersey schools below the college level.  ‘Schools below college level’ is meant to include all pre-schools and early childhood learning centers.

Category 13 is required for all pesticide applicators hired by schools to perform pest control services.  Commercial Mosquito Control and Right-of-Way applicators (not hired by the school) are exempt for work performed on school property during the normal course of their work, but will have other notification responsibilities to schools.

School IPM: New Jersey School IPM Model Policy and Plan

In New Jersey, all public, private, and charter schools are required to adopt an IPM Policy that includes a school-specific IPM Plan. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) in cooperation with the New Jersey School Boards Association, the Commissioner of Education, and Rutgers Cooperative Extension produced a Model School IPM Policy for for New Jersey Schools (PDF) for use by the schools. The Model Policy (last revised 9/03) stipulated that the school would also issue a plan of how School IPM would be implemented by June 12, 2004.
