Do you feel that as an administrator, pest management is not your business?  Think again. A school IPM program involves everyone in the school, and as an administrator, you can make a difference and get your colleagues to listen!  This module will show you how. Conveniently divided into two learning lessons, this module describes the role of a school administrator in implementing a successful and sustainable IPM program. This topic has been conveniently divided into two presentations for learning at your own pace. There is also a version of these presentations that are designed to be downloaded and modified to be used in an in-class scenario.  Both of these versions are specifically aimed at providing administrators with the essential information regarding common pests in schools and how to deal with them.
