Healthy Schools Act
What is the Healthy Schools Act (HSA) and who is it for?
The Healthy Schools Act (HSA) is a law that defines pesticide use and reporting requirements for California K – 12 public schools and licensed child care centers—collectively known as schoolsites. The HSA applies to anyone (school staff, volunteers, and pest management businesses) applying any type of pesticide at a schoolsite. The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) develops training and other outreach materials to assist with HSA compliance and to facilitate the adoption of least-toxic pest management strategies. Schoolsite pesticide use information is required to be reported to DPR.
