Homeless Children - Policy 5111.01
Medication Administration to Students
The Board of Education shall not be responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of student illness. The administration of medication to a student during school hours will be permitted only when failure to do so would jeopardize the health of the student, the student would not be able to attend school if the medication were not administered during school hours, or the child is disabled and requires medication to benefit from his/her educational program. For purposes of this policy, "practitioner" shall include any physician, dentist, podiatrist, optometrist, physician assistant, and advanced practice nurse prescriber who is licensed in any state. "Medication" shall include all drugs including those prescribed by a practitioner and any nonprescription drug products. ?Administer? means the direct application of a nonprescription drug product or prescription drug, whether by injection, ingestion, or other means, to the human body. ?Nonprescription drug product? means any nonnarcotic drug product which may be sold without a prescription order and which is prepackaged for use by consumers and labeled in accordance with the requirements of State and Federal law. Before any prescribed medication may be administered to any student during school hours, the Board shall require the written instructions from the child's practitioner accompanied by the written authorization of the parent. Nonprescription drug products may be administered to any student during school hours only with the prior written consent of the parent. Substances, which are not FDA approved (i.e. natural products, food supplements), will require the written instruction of a practitioner and the written consent of the parent. The document authorizing the administration of both prescribed medication and nonprescription drug products shall be kept on file in the administrative offices. Only medication in its original container; labeled with the date, if a prescription; the student's name; and the exact dosage will be administered. Parents, or students authorized in writing by their practitioner and parents, may administer medication. No student is allowed to provide or sell any type of medication to another student. Violations of this rule will be considered violations of Policy 5530 Drug Prevention and of the Student Code of Conduct. Medications will be administered and the instruction and consent forms will be maintained in accordance with the District Administrator's guidelines.
Use or Possession of Electronic Community Devices
(POLICY #5136) It is the policy of the Shawano School District to restrict the use of personal cell phones and other electronic equipment. Students are expected to keep the device turned off and out of sight during the academic day and in other situations where the use is prohibited or distracting. The Board recognizes that our electronic communications system (network) will allow unprecedented opportunities for students, to communicate, learn access and publish information. The Board believes that the resources available through this network and the skills that students will develop in using it are of significant value in the learning process and success in the future. These new opportunities also pose many new challenges including, but not limited to, access for all students, age-level appropriateness of material, security and cost of maintaining systems. The District will endeavor to make certain that these concerns are appropriately addressed, but cannot ensure that problems will not arise.
