Where a student requires medication during school activities, the school principal is responsible for the administration of such medication. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to bring the matter to the attention of the principal.
Except in emergency situations, and subject to the requirements of the Anaphylaxis Regulation, no employee of the Board shall administer medication or supervise the self-administration of medication unless it is carried out in accordance with the Medication for Students Regulation. The Board recognizes that a student may be absent from school for a few days during this process.
It is recognized that the medication to be administered should not normally require any special skill or knowledge on the part of the school principal or designate.
