5 Action Plan Templates For Schools

5 Action Plan Templates For Schools

Action plans are the first step to understanding, and being prepared for, complex student health needs. They document known health conditions, provide treatment guidelines, and keep everyone's minds a little more at ease. The goal of an action plan is to provide school nurses and administrators with the necessary information to treat a student for a condition they may have - this includes allergies, diabetes, seizures, and more.In fact, action plans are so vital that we included them in our list of the sevenessential components of a student health file . Now, join us as we provide you with five action plan templates for schools that you can use to better understand your students' health needs. Distribute these forms to parents before the beginning of the year, or better yet, utilize conditional questions so that parents aren't burdened with unnecessary paperwork. The bonus for Magnus Health SMR customers is that your action plans are digitally distributed to parents (using conditional questions if you choose) - meaning everything is already set! At the end of this post, you'll be able to download all five forms, plus six other templates to create a complete student health file. Now, let's get started! The American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) has put together an Anaphylaxis Emergency Plan that can be filled out by a student's doctor, signed by a parent, and kept on file at your school. This action plan is among one of the four most common types of action plans (next to asthma, diabetes, and seizures), and it details anaphylaxissymptoms to look for. The most dangerous of these, as stated by the AAAAI, are low blood pressure, difficulty breathing, and loss of consciousness. Continue reading >>

These tips can help your student stay safe and healthy at school: Make a diabetes medical management plan. This is a written document prepared by you and your childs healthcare team. It spells out his or her treatment plan. It should include emergency contacts and instructions for monitoring blood glucose and measuring insulin doses. Also information on taking pills, eating meals, participating in exercise, and checking for ketones should be part of the treatment plan. It should also explain exactly what to do in case of low or high blood glucose. Make sure the school has a copy of this plan, testing supplies for blood sugar and urinary ketones,and a glucagon emergency kit. The school may also need to develop its own internal plan that is based on your healthcare team's recommendations.All medicine and supplies should be clearly labeled with your child's name as well as instructions. Meet with school personnel. Review your childs individual needs and make sure that he or she is able to follow the medical management plan at school. Ask that the school nurse attend the meeting.If school personnel are not familiar with diabetes, ask that the nurse do an inservice for all employees. This includes administrators, teachers, and support staff.Discuss the possibility of an individualized education plan, or IEP, for your child.Make sure you understand your school's policies and emergency procedures related to diabetes. Have your child wear a medical alert ID at all times. Also make sure your child always carries a fast-acting source of glucose and knows how to use it. If your child is too young, make sure school personnel are educated to recognize the signs of hypogl Continue reading >>

Back To School With Diabetes | Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center

For parents of children with diabetes, getting ready for a new school year includes a lot more than buying new clothes, backpacks, notebooks, and pencils. It means buying diabetes supplies to keep at school and most importantly, preparing school staff to help your children stay safe at school and at school-sponsored activities. Nobody knows your childs day-to-day needs and how to respond to a diabetes emergency better than the parents, said Natasha Leibel, head of the pediatric endocrinology program at the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center. Thats why it is so important to start the school year in contact with the school health team and to keep open the lines of communication throughout the school year. Step One: in the back to school process is to fill out the sheet called, Parent Request for School Forms which can be accessed on the Berrie Center website. If you are a parent or guardian of a school-bound child with diabetes and you havent received this sheet , please contact Kindra Matthews ( [email protected] or [email protected] ) who is the point person at the Berrie Center for back-to-school forms. For children with diabetes, there are two important documents that must be completed before the start of schoolthe 504 Plan and the Diabetes Medical Management Plan. The 504 plan was developed to meet the requirements of a federal law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities including people with insulin dependent diabetes. It sets out the actions the school will take to make sure students with diabetes are medically safe, have the same access to education as other children, and are treated fairly. It is a tool that can be used to make sure that students, parents/guardians and school staff understand their responsibilities. A comprehe Continue reading >>

School Planning 101 Diabetes At School

School Planning 101 Diabetes At School

School-age children spend about half their waking hours at school, and children with diabetes are no different. Since your child cant leave his diabetes at home when he goes to school, it is necessary to have a plan preferably a written plan for managing his diabetes while he is at school. Such a plan should be individualized and should cover your childs daily diabetes care as well as provide instructions for handling problems, emergencies, and any unusual situations that may arise during the school day. Copies of the plan should be kept at school so that your childs teachers and other school personnel such as the nurse can access it easily when it is needed. One format for laying out your childs diabetes management needs in school is the Diabetes Medical Management Plan (DMMP), which was developed by the American Diabetes Association. A DMMP includes such information as who is responsible for particular diabetes management duties, instructions for what to do in emergency situations, and guidelines for attending to the childs needs. (For information on getting a sample plan, see School Plan Resources. ) In many cases, putting together a DMMP and discussing it with teachers and other school staff is all that is needed to make sure a childs diabetes-related needs are attended to at school. However, if you feel that your childs diabetes is not being cared for properly in school in spite of having a DMMP in place or if he is being discriminated against because of his diabetes (for example, if a gym teacher regularly prohibits him from participating in gym activities for fear hell develop hypoglycemia), you may ask for a 504 plan to be developed. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights law that prohibits disability-based discrimination in all program Continue reading >>

Health Services / Diabetes Medical Management Plan

MCPS Health Services Department's interventions for all students with diabetes: A "health alert" is entered in the school computer system to remind assigned teachers a student on their roster has diabetes. Nurses may add short individual notes as needed. A confidential icon alerts assigned teachers to review health concerns for students on their roster. Assigned classroom teachers are given written information: "Health Concern, Diabetes Type 1 General Information" which includes a short explanation about diabetes type 1, usual accommodations, and emergency responses that may be needed. This information functions as a generic "emergency healthcare plan". Teachers are asked to have this information available for substitute teachers. Ifastudent's class schedule changes from what was originally planned, please contact the school nurse to ensure this information is given to any new teachers. At the start of the school year, a transportation plan, with the child's name, address, contact information, and emergency response information is sent to Beach Transportation unless previously indicatedthat thechild does not use school transportation. Nurses are available to help a student with problem solving as needed. In the PreK-8 grade schools, nurses travel between schools to see students for scheduled visits and are available by phone. Sentinel, Big Sky and Hellgate nurses are usually available in the health office. The RN provides diabetes instruction to teachers for specific students as needed, typically, the younger and less independent students in PreK-5. If the District is aware that a middle school teacher may be unfamiliar with type 1 diabetes, Health Services attempts to schedule a time to meet with the teacher at the start of the school year. Students may check their bl Continue reading >>

When At School | The Madison Clinic

At the beginning of every school year there is always planning to prepare your child for a successful academic year. For parents who have a child with type 1 diabetes there is an additional layer of planning and preparation to keep your child safe at school. It is important to know your rights and responsibilities. Children with diabetes have the right to have equal access to educational opportunities and to be equal participants in school related activities. Laws Protecting Your Child with Type 1 Diabetes The two main laws that protect a child with diabetes are Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ( Section 504 ) and the American with Disabilities Act . Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights law that prohibits disability-based discrimination in all programs that receive federal financial assistance. A "504 plan" is an agreement between a student/family and a school district stating the student will have full access to all school activities and will have his or her diabetes related needs met. The American with Disabilities Act is another civil rights law that protects students with disabilities. In addition to public school students, this law protects students in private schools, unless a religious institution runs the school. Now that you are aware there are laws supporting your child with diabetes at school, you as the parent/guardian must work with your child's health care team and school personnel to create a plan that will support your child at school. Your provider will sign school orders which will contain specific information for your child with regard to checking blood sugar, treatment for low blood sugar and high blood sugar, when and how to administer insulin, count carbohydrates, exercise guidelines and disaster planning.

School Nurse / Diabetes Management

School Nurse / Diabetes Management

Managing diabetes at school is most effective when there is a partnership among students, parents, school nurse, health care providers, teachers, counselors, coaches, transportation, food service employees, and administrators. The school nurse provides the health expertise and coordination needed to ensure cooperation from all partners in assisting the student toward self-management of diabetes. Each student with diabetes is unique in his or her disease process, developmental and intellectual abilities and levels of assistance required for disease management. The goals of the Diabetes Medical Management Plan are to promote normal or near normal blood glucose with minimal episodes of hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia, normal growth and development, positive mental health, and academic success (Kaufman, 2009). Throughout childhood and adolescence, the student with diabetes is continuously moving through transitions toward more independence and self-management (Silverstein et al., 2005). They will require various levels of supervision or assistance to perform diabetes care tasks in school. Students who lack diabetes management experience or cognitive and developmental skills must have assistance with their diabetes management during the school day as determined by the nursing assessment and as outlined in the Diabetes Medical Management Plan.
