Very interersting.http://schoolboardnews.nsba.org/author/ndillon/

The devil is in the details, however, as countless schools that have been ensnared or threatened with litigation over the years have discovered. Though it’s unlikely schools will be liable if a child ingests a food allergen, a district puts itself in jeopardy if it is not explicit about preventative measures and emergency protocol, said NSBA Senior Staff Attorney Lisa Soronen.

For example, allergens need to be discussed and planned for in all school settings, the types and frequency of training needs to be spelled out, and a crisis plan needs to assign tasks, Soronen said.

“Things like who’s in charge of administering the EpiPen need to be figured out,” she said.

To: Board of Trustees
From: Richard Gilchrist, Board Chair
Subject: NATIONAL SCHOOL BOARDS’ ASSOCIATION
ANNUAL CONFERENCE APRIL 9-11, 2010
Recommendation
That the Board of Trustees approves the attendance of a Trustee(s) at the
National School Boards’ Association Annual Conference April 9 – 11, 2011 in San Francisco, California as presented at its Regular Board meeting of 25 November 2010.
Background
Parkland School Division is a learning organization dedicated to the development of children whose primary purpose is to create learning environments through which children achieve enduring success. While Parkland School Division believes professional development opportunities are essential for all staff, Trustees in Parkland School Division have not attended conferences outside of Alberta since 2007. At the 05 October 2010 Regular Board meeting, Policy 7, article 12 .3.2 was revised to ensure the Board approved Trustees’ attendance at conventions, seminars, workshops and other similar functions.

Anybody else from Canada going?

Why Is This Important To Your School District?

School districts may receive federal reimbursement for health services delivered to Medicaid-eligible children with disabilities who may need diagnostic, preventative, and rehabilitative services; speech, physical and occupational therapies. In addition, school districts receive reimbursement for the transportation costs of such services and administrative costs such as outreach for enrollment purposes, and coordination and/or monitoring of medical care.

In the Schoolyard and Beyond: Addressing Childhood Asthma in Your Community recommends schools, families and communities adopt a coordinated approach to keeping asthma-afflicted youth as safe and healthy as possible. Among the steps suggested stakeholders are advised to:

Develop an asthma action plan for the individual child that includes information like medication, specific triggers, and symptoms;
Reduce exposure to known triggers; manage medications and educate youth on the appropriate way to use them;
Encourage opportunities for physical activity;
Establish and maintain good communication;
Provide and/or take advantage of asthma education offered by local asthma coalitions.

....but if it is an advisory with no teeth like the one in Alberta...then it is not worth the paper it is written on and is more about covering the board's butt and $ than it is about protecting the child.

That is encouraging that the National Board would like to get that changed! I agree that it may not necessarily work but it is a start.
