The following was included in TCTA's 2017-18 Survival Guide , the ultimate reference tool for Texas educators, and is current as of September 2017 but is subject to change. Each student with diabetes must have a diabetes management and treatment plan developed by the parent and the students doctor. Principals of schools with students with diabetes must seek out school employees (other than health care professionals) to serve as unlicensed diabetes care assistants. A principal must attempt to ensure that the school has at least one unlicensed assistant if it employs a full-time nurse; if it has no full-time nurse, the school must have at least three unlicensed assistants. School employees may not be penalized or disciplined for refusing to serve as diabetes care assistants. The assistants are trained by a health care professional on: recognizing symptoms, understanding proper actions to take, understanding the details of the students health plan, performing finger-sticks and checking urine ketone levels, administering glucagon and insulin, recognizing complications requiring emergency care, and understanding recommended schedules and food intake. Before an assistant is allowed to help a child, the parent must sign an agreement, which states that the parent understands that an unlicensed assistant is not liable for civil damages. Schools must allow students to self-check and self-medicate in accordance with the students health plan. TCTA added language to this law to avoid the creation of potential liability for school employees. Continue reading >>

Diabetes Management And Action Plans

Diabetes Management And Action Plans

The Perth Childrens Hospital Diabetes Service and the Department of Education Western Australia endorse use of the diabetes management and action plans listed below for implementation in all early years, primary and secondary school settings. These management and action plans are based on current evidence-based, best practice for young people with type 1 diabetes and are provided here for use in a secure PDF format only.

Each student should have one management plan and one action plan, which complement each other according to the current treatment they follow (TDI = twice daily injections; MDI = multiple daily injections or insulin pump therapy). For children and young people in primary and secondary school settings please use the relevant plans below. This applies to children and young people in kindergarten up to year 12.

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 >>

Managing Diabetes At School Playbook

Managing Diabetes At School Playbook

Goodbye, summer. Hello, homework. And guess what—the first assignment isn’t for kids. Parents, make a game plan to ensure all the bases are covered for your child’s diabetes care at school. Getting back into the routine of school takes a little more preparation for kids with diabetes, but it pays off over and over as the weeks and months go by. And since kids spend nearly half their waking hours in school, reliable diabetes care during the school day really matters. Some older students will be comfortable testing their blood sugar, injecting insulin, and adjusting levels if they use an insulin pump. Younger students and those who just found out they have diabetes will need help with everyday diabetes care. In a perfect world, all teachers and other school staff would understand how to manage diabetes so they could support your child as needed. But here in the real world, you’ll want to provide information to the school and work with staff to keep your son or daughter safe and healthy, no matter what the school day brings. Put it in Writing No two kids handle their diabetes exactly the same way. Before the year begins, meet with your child’s health care team to develop a personalized Diabetes Medical Management Plan (DMMP). Then visit the school and review the DMMP with the principal, office secretary, school nurse, nutrition service manager, teachers, and other staff who may have responsibility for your son or daughter during the day and after school. The DMMP explains everything about diabetes management and treatment, including: Target blood sugar range and whether your child needs help checking his or her blood sugar Your child’s specific hypoglycemia (low blood sugar, or “low”) symptoms (see the list on this page) and how to treat hypoglycemia Insuli Continue reading >>
