The PA IPM Program, in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and The Pennsylvania State University Colleges of Agricultural Sciences and Education, developed this comprehensive school IPM manual.
EPA developed a unique software tool to help school districts evaluate and manage their school facilities for key environmental, safety and health issues. The Healthy School Environments Assessment Tool (HealthySEAT) is designed to be customized and used by district-level staff to conduct completely voluntary self-assessments of their school (and other) facilities and to track and manage information on environmental conditions school by school.

The manual includes chapters about IPM, including monitoring and inspection, treatment strategies, action and injury levels, and how to develop an IPM program. It also has chapters on specific pests that cause problems in structures or on lawns and grounds, such as cockroaches, flies, lice, rodents, bed bugs and stinging insects.
The Community IPM Project has both experts and resources to help schools, local agencies, and house projects with pest management programs.
This brochure is intended for school and child care facility staff,
parents, and pest management professionals.
Everyone has a role in IPM to prevent and manage pests in
and around schools and child care facilities.
