Student Self-Administration of Medications
(Refer to Complete Board Policy JGFGBA)
The self-administration of medication is allowed for eligible students in grades K–12. As used in this policy medication means medicine for the treatment of anaphylaxis or asthma including, but not limited to, any medicine defined in current federal regulation as an inhaled bronchodilator or auto-injectable epinephrine. Self-administration is the student’s discretionary use of approved medication for which the student has a prescription or written direction from a health care provider, or written parental authorization on file in the school office for over-the-counter medications. Self-administration of medication at a dosage or rate exceeding product label instructions may result in denial of the privilege to self-administer medication and/or disciplinary action as appropriate.
