IPM Star for Schools
How can schools which meet high standards effectively make their case to consumers, constituents, regulators and others?
Schools, childcare and school-age child education and recreation programs may apply for IPM STAR Certification.
Applicants are evaluated by a careful on-site evaluation of their IPM program by an experienced IPM professional. The Evaluator will use a quantitative, practical evaluation document specific to the organization type to measure performance. A minimum score must be achieved to become an IPM Star Certified Organization. A copy of the evaluation document is available for download in MS Word or in PDF format, or in print on request.
An additional resource, IPM Standards (pdf), is available on our IPM Standards and School IPM 2020 pages. IPM Standards is a comprehensive list of practices and resources and should be used as a reference, not as an evaluation for schools, or as a means for them to achieve certification.
