Response to Student Injury or Illness - 3431

The Board recognizes that schools are responsible for providing first aid or emergency treatment in case of injury or illness of a student. To that end, staff designated to provide student health support should be certified in first aid/CPR/AED. The Board encourages all school staff to become certified in first aid. School staff will refer to the joint Department of Health and Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction document How to Respond: Illness and Injury at School for guidance. Further medical attention in non-emergency cases is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Schools will notify the parent or guardian of students who suffer injuries, illness or physical trauma at school or at any school-sponsored activity as soon as practicable.

The Superintendent will establish procedures to be followed consistent with this policy.
