NSBA creates guide for dealing with students’ life-threatening food allergies, incorporating best practices with board policies



Safe at School and Ready to Learn: a Comprehensive Policy Guide for Protecting Students with Life-Threatening Food Allergies, a practical guide from NSBA, is designed to help school leaders and schools establish comprehensive policies and practices that support the safety, well-being, and academic success of students with life-threatening food allergies.


In addition to providing relevant data related to food allergies in schools, the publication focuses on the need for schools to partner with families and health care providers in identifying and preparing management plans for students with food allergies.


Further, it provides information on following medication protocols; developing a coordinated system to prevent and respond to food allergy-related emergencies across the school environment; communicating with and educating parents, students, and school personnel; and monitoring and evaluating policies and practices.
