Medical Policy

The Board recognizes that the onus for administering medication or medical treatment to students is on the student, parent, guardian or medical practitioner, and further believes that assessing both the need for, and correct means of, administering medication or medical treatment are beyond the knowledge and competency of its staff.

The Board recognizes that while it is not the mandate of the schools, one or more of its staff may be requested to administer medication or medical treatment.

The Board consequently believes that, except in the case of accidents and emergencies, the administration of medication or medical treatment should be limited to that which can be provided by staff who have received explicit instructions from the attending physicians and the parent of the student with the medical condition.
