Toxic Free Kids | Toxic Free Child Care | Toxic Free Schools
The School Children’s Health Act was created by a Toxic Free NC and a coalition of NC children’s health advocates to reduce health risks to students and staff from several toxic substances that were common in schools. It became law in North Carolina on Oct. 1, 2006, and in October of 2011, it took full effect for all the state’s public schools, including charter schools.
The law requires NC public school systems to adopt state-of-the-art Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs that focus on common sense pest prevention and least-toxic methods for pest control at school, both indoors and out.
Schools, teachers, students & parents, have questions? Need help starting or improving your school's IPM program? Please call on Toxic Free NC for free assistance - email us or call us toll-free at 1-888-NO-SPRAY.
