All District 207 facilities practice Integrated Pest Management to minimize the use of any
pesticides on school grounds. The Structural Pest Control Act (225 ILCS 235/) and the
Lawn Care Products Application and Notice Act (415 ILCS 65/) requires public schools to
notify parents/guardians and school employees (who have requested to be notiﬁed) at
least 48 hours (two business days) prior to any pesticide applications on school grounds.
The term “pesticide” includes insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides and fungicides. The
notiﬁcation requirement extends to both indoor and outdoor pesticide applications.
Excluded from the notiﬁcation requirement are antimicrobials such as disinfectants,
sanitizers or deodorizers, insecticide baits and rodenticide baits.
Pesticide application notiﬁcation can be included in newsletters, bulletins, calendars and/or
other correspondence currently published by each school and the District.
On Saturday, September 16 through Sunday, September 17, 2023, Maine Township High
School District 207 will be applying the following products to various locations at Maine
West, weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather the application will take
place Saturday September 30, through Sunday, October 1, 2023.
