Abstract/Contents:"Since 2009 Oregon has required all schools to utilize integrated pest management (IPM) strategies. Currently 15 states across the United States have adopted pesticide restrictions pertaining to public schools. Because of these increasing restrictions, there is a clear need for implementation of IPM in schools. Since 2011, Oregon State University has conducted integrated pest management (IPM) training specific to public schools. To determine which practices and materials school employees are using as a result of the program, we administered a survey to 2016 training attendees. We found that all returning attendees had been implementing practices and using materials as a result of the training. The majority of respondents reported a reduction in pesticide use. The results of our survey indicate that a training program for school IPM coordinators developed with attention to key components (on-site learning, continued needs assessment, and supporting resource materials) has fostered increased adoption of key IPM practices. Our approach may serve as a reference for Extension specialists in developing school IPM programs in other states. With these key components in mind, a series of turfgrass management demonstration plots were initiated September 2017 at the OSU Lewis-Brown Farm in Corvallis, OR. On August 23, 2018 school grounds staff and IPM coordinators attended a school IPM training event at the Lewis-Brown Farm. Topics focused on findings produced by the demonstration plots as well as concerns identified in stakeholder needs assessment surveys (herbicide selection and burrowing mammal trapping). In 2018 and 2019 a series of supporting resource materials were produced. These materials conveyed demonstration plot findings, reviewed turfgrass IPM basics, and provided content for a study manual for a new pesticide applicator license category specific to schools. This presentation will highlight materials developed for school IPM training, and lessons learned from eight years of training."
