Use of Disinfectants

The Healthy Schools Act requires anyone using any pesticide at school or child care center to complete annual training. Sanitizers and disinfectants are antimicrobial pesticides because they kill germs. This includes teachers, aides, custodians, and food service workers. Anyone using these products must complete annual training, which is available on SafeSchools, and is titled “Integrated Pest Management”.
