Students with Special Health Care Needs

Many health care services can be provided for students to keep them at school so they can learn and participate with other students. Our goal is to provide information to parents and legal guardians about some of the services and programs available for addressing the health care needs of students during the school day to help students succeed in school. It is important that the necessary health care information is shared with the appropriate people – such as teachers on duty during break, bus drivers and cafeteria employees – to make sure the students’ needs are met.

Individual Health Care Plans or Individual Health Plans (IHP)

Students with special health care needs — chronic health conditions requiring treatments, procedures, medications and/or monitoring – must have IHPs performed by school personnel. Students with inhalers and epi-pens must also have IHPs.
