Physician Prescribed Services

The School Board recognizes the need of some students to receive special medical procedures prescribed by the physician during the school day in order for the student to have meaningful access to an educational program.

Parents/guardians of students requiring physician prescribed services at school shall inform school personnel of the needs of the student. Parents/guardians shall be responsible for providing appropriate forms, equipment and supplies necessary for the special medical procedure prescribed by the physician. Physician prescribed services will be provided by the school nurse or qualified staff.

Communication between the prescribing physician and/or parent/guardian and school personnel is recognized to be important if maximum gains of the physician prescribed services are to be achieved.
