Protection of Students with Life-threatening Allergies Act

Description

This Act sets out that school boards must establish and maintain policies to protect students attending their schools who have life-threatening allergies. The policies aim to reduce a student’s risk of exposure to life-threatening allergens at school, while providing school board employees with the necessary measures to respond to an anaphylactic reaction, including the maintenance of at least one epinephrine auto-injector in each school. This Act also protects school board employees from liability in the event of their involvement in an emergency administration of medication.
