Bensenville School District 2 practices Integrated Pest Management, a program that combines preventative techniques, non-chemical pest control methods, and the appropriate use of pesticides with a preference for products that are the least harmful to human health and the environment. The term “pesticide” includes insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides, and fungicides.
District 2 is establishing a registry of people who wish to be notified prior to pesticide applications. To be included in this registry, request a Pesticide Registry Notice form from your school office.
Asbestos Inspection & Management Plan
The Asbestos Hazards Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires school districts to have a stateaccredited inspector inspect for asbestos-containing building materials. Additionally, the law requires a state-accredited management planner to prepare an Asbestos Management Plan using information gained by the inspection.
District 2’s Inspection and Management Plans were submitted to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) for approval on October 12, 1988 and were reviewed and approved by the IDPH on April 17, 1991. AHERA further requires a thorough re-inspection every three years and periodic surveillances every six months. The last re-inspection was completed and submitted on January 3, 2014. These documents are available for review by all members of the community in the District 2 office located at 210 S. Church Road, Bensenville, IL.
