Administering Medications to Students
The primary care and responsibility for administering medications rests with the student's parents and guardians. The Board discourages the use and administration of medications at school but realizes that sometimes it is necessary for the health of the student. As authorized by G.S. 115C-307, the Board intends by this policy to provide for the limited circumstances under which the administration of medical care or medications at school or by school personnel will be permitted. Reasonable efforts should be made by the parent or guardian to obtain physician permission to adjust the dosages of medication prescribed so it can be given at home before and/or after school hours. Students shall not be permitted to take medications while at school or at school activities, except upon the determination of a physician that it is necessary to receive a drug or medication during the school day. A copy of this policy and the Medication Administration Form will be provided to the parents and/or guardians who request administration of medication during the school day or at school functions. Students needing medication at school who do not have written authorization for self-medication may have medication administered by school personnel provided: A completed and signed Medication Authorization Form ( F 2.2 Form) has been filed with the principal or his designee.
