Facilitation of School District IPM Implementation
Project Leader: Lynn Braband (Community IPM, Geneva, NY)
Collaborators: Livonia School District, Genesee Valley BOCES, CCE of Livingston County
Introduction: In late 1999, the Livonia Central School District in Livingston County was identified as a partner for the development of a comprehensive school IPM program. Genesee Valley BOCES personnel recommended Livonia because of the probable good cooperation of the school administration and the districts desire to reduce pesticide use. Initial meetings identified the needs and objectives of the partnership.
