Medication PolicyHISD board policy and procedures stat that it is not the function of public school personnel to administer medical treatment or medication, including "over-the-counter" drugs. Teachers and other school personnel are expected to limit themselves to the usual and accepted practices of first aid in managing emergencies due to sickness or accident. Students on long-term medication that cannot, under any arrangement, be administered other than during school hours may take medication at school with a physician's written statement and a properly completed medication form (No. 40.3740). All medication will be maintained in the clinic and administered by the school nurse.
