Comment Sought on Emergency Care for Students Experiencing Anaphylaxis Policy
September 25, 2012
 
The Montgomery County Board of Education has requested community comment regarding its Policy JPD, Emergency Care for Students Experiencing Anaphylaxis. This policy authorizes the school nurse and other school personnel to administer auto-injectable epinephrine to a student who is determined to be or perceived to be in anaphylaxis, regardless of whether the student has been identified as having an anaphylactic allergy or has a prescription for epinephrine from an authorized licensed health care practitioner. Policy JPD also requires the superintendent of schools to establish procedures regarding training to recognize the symptoms of anaphylaxis, procedures for emergency administration of auto-injectable epinephrine, and proper follow-up procedures.

A copy of the draft policy
, Policy JPD, Emergency Care for Students Experiencing Anaphylaxis is available through the Department of Public Information and Web Services by calling 301-279-3391. You also can access the policy on the MCPS website.  

Individuals who wish to provide comments should respond in writing by October 15, 2012. All responses should be sent to the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, 850 Hungerford Drive, Room 122, Rockville, Maryland 20850 or sent by email to the Board of Education at boe@mcpsmd.org. All responses will be shared with the Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools.
