Administration of Medications
The California Education Code states that any student who is required to take medication or receive a health related procedure that is prescribed by a physician during the regular school day, may be assisted by the school nurse or other designated school personnel if the district receives:
- A written statement from the physician detailing the method, amount and time schedules that the medication or procedure is to be administered
All medications must be in the original pharmacy container with the original prescription label adhered to the container.
No other prescription or over-the-counter medications, vitamins, herbs, or alternative medications may be carried by students on their person, in a backpack or other container except as indicated above and with the express knowledge and permission of the school nurse.
Limited over-the-counter medications may be available at some school sites and can be given only by a credentialed school nurse or trained health technician with parent or guardian consent on file.
Forms for medication administration or procedures are available at your child’s school and below.
Recognize that school health personnel will communicate with student’s prescribing health professional if the school requires clarification about that procedure or medication delivery, such as its dose, scheduling, side effects, or indications.
Students may carry and self-administer prescription auto-inject- able epinephrine if certain requirements are met.
Students may carry and self-administer prescription asthma inhalers if certain requirements are met.
