Caring for Students with Life-Threatening Allergies
The New York State Department of Health in consultation with the New York State Education Department, has developed the attached procedures and guidelines to assist school districts in the development and implementation of their local policy. This document is intended for guidance to be used by the Board of Education, Superintendents, and the building team, as well as the parent/guardian in providing a safe environment and reasonable care for students with life-threatening allergies. It does not constitute a mandate nor imply liability should the school choose other options for care. While this resource contains recommendations that represent best practice, the school district and health professionals must determine the appropriateness of care developed to each individual student in the unique situation in which they practice within the parameters of existing laws and regulation (see Laws and Regulations p. 38).
