Welcome to the Environmental web page for Tomball ISD! Our goal is to provide students, staff, and visitors with a healthy and ecologically friendly learning and working environment.
ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN
The district works diligently to maintain compliance with federal and state laws governing asbestos in school buildings. A copy of the Districts Asbestos Management Plan is available in the Environmental Services office.
PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN
The District is required to follow Integrated Pest Management (IPM) procedures to control pests on school grounds. Although the District strives to use the safest effective methods to manage pests, including a variety on non-chemical control measures, pesticide use is sometimes necessary to maintain and assure a safe, pest-free school environment.
All pesticides used in TISD are registered for their intended use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and are applied by certified pesticide applicators. All inspections and treatments,if necessary, are conducted on Thursday nights after school hours. All outdoor applications will be posted at the time of treatment and signs will remain until safe to enter the area. Parents with further questions, or wish to be notified about upcoming pesticide applications, may contact the Districts IPM coordinator.
