Board Policies


Adoption Date: Jun 15, 2002
5340 - EMERGENCY CARE FOR ACCIDENT OR ILLNESS

The Board believes that school personnel have certain responsibilities in case of accidents which occur in school.  Said responsibilities extend to the administration of first aid by persons trained to do so, summoning of medical assistance, notification of administrative personnel, notification of parents, and the filing of accident reports.

Employees should administer first aid within the limits of their knowledge of recommended practices.  All employees should make an effort to increase their understanding of the proper steps to be taken in the event of an accident.

The administrator in charge must submit an accident report to the Superintendent on all accidents which required or may require medical attention.
