It hasn't taken much time for local media to take note of the October 1, 2011 deadline for NC public schools to implement an IPM plan:
Now is the time to get a plan in place if you haven't already done so. The public will likely hear more and more about school IPM, so don't be surprised if you start to get calls from parents, teachers and/or staff asking if the school system has a plan implemented.
For information on creating and implementing an IPM plan, please visit our website at http://schoolipm.ncsu.edu. There you will find a sample IPM policy, rules and regulations associated with school IPM, a copy of the IPM manual, and many other valuable resources. Also, if you have any questions about school IPM or need assistance with putting a plan in place, please contact Patty Alder at 919-513-3805 or firstname.lastname@example.org
