Schools across Illinois were required to have allergy management policies in effect by the first of this year, using guidelines written by the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Department of Public Health. However, many districts — like CPS — have not yet formally implemented those policies.

Katelyn Carlson, 13, died of anaphylaxis on Dec. 17 after reportedly eating takeout food served at Edison Regional Gifted Center in Albany Park. CPS, which is investigating the incident, has revealed few details, but parents of other students in Katelyn's class said the girl had problems breathing but was not given epinephrine. Paramedics arrived to find school employees giving Katelyn CPR.

"I don't feel like it's a school's place to take the place of a medical professional," Lechner said. "I can't imagine us making medical decisions."
