Self-Administration of Asthma and Anaphylaxis Medications
It is the policy of the board of directors that students with asthma or anaphylaxis are afforded the opportunity to self-administer prescribed medications. The student’s parent or guardian will submit a written request and other documentation required by the school. The student’s prescribing health care provider must provide a written treatment plan.
The student must demonstrate to the school’s professional registered nurse that the student is competent to possess and self-administer prescribed medications during school and at school sponsored events.
The superintendent will establish procedures that implement this policy and to develop emergency rescue procedures.
