“This common-sense bill will save lives and allow our K-12 schools to take the necessary steps to ensure the general safety of all students with life-threatening allergies,” said Singer (R-30). “With the proper information and training, teachers and staff will be able to provide immediate care to students who are severely allergic to things such as bee stings, peanuts, and shellfish.”

Under the legislation, S-54, the school nurse will develop an individualized health care plan, an emergency health care plan, and provide training to all school personnel who may come in contact with the student with allergies.

Each individualized health care plan is required to include the symptoms of an allergic reaction, recommended treatment, and accommodations for school trips and other school-related activities.

A previous version of this bill, S-3305, was introduced in the Senate and referred to the Senate Education Committee on January 15, 2019.
