Abstract

The Monroe IPM Model is designed to facilitate the transition from traditional pest control practices to a contemporary and verifiable IPM program in school districts. The model is an implementation plan providing the basic structure for organizing, maintaining, and evaluating a community-level program. The use of this model in 10 school districts in seven states (1-10 yr) resulted in an average 71% reduction in pesticide applications and 78% reduction in pest complaints to school administrations. Execution of the model resulted in the systematic diffusion of IPM in cohort school districts in Arizona. As of May 2005, 30.4% of K-12 children in Arizona schools are benefiting from verifiable IPM programs. Considering the percentage of Arizona students attending schools with IPM, the following diffusion rates are apparent: 1.8% in 2000-2001; 10.4% in 2002-2003, and 18.2% in 2004-May 2005.
