    Grounds Maintenance Pesticide Practices
    Posted on 08/17/2018

    The safety of our students, staff and families is a top priority. Over a decade ago, Seattle Public Schools worked extensively with members of the environmental community to create procedures that respect our planet and all the people using our grounds and facilities. Board policy and superintendent procedures were developed as a result of this effort.

    It has come to our attention that some district ground crews have used Roundup which contains glyphosate a potential carcinogenic. We have halted our use of this product. We will review grounds maintenance practices to ensure we follow policy and procedure.
