5310 - STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES AND REQUIREMENTS

The South-Western City Board of Education realizes the responsibility of the schools to help protect and improve the health of students. The services of a nurse will be available to the District. The principal will be responsible for the administration of the health program in his/her particular school.

Of necessity, school health services must be limited to the prevention and detection of health problems, referral of problems through parents to the family physician or community health agencies and emergency care.

Each school will have on file for each student an emergency medical authorization form providing information from the parent/guardian on how s/he wishes the school to proceed in event of a health emergency involving the student and a release for the school in case emergency action must be taken.

Any student who has been removed from a physical education class, or athletic practice or competition, by a teacher, coach, or referee because s/he has exhibited signs, symptoms, or behaviors consistent with having sustained a concussion or head injury shall not be permitted to return to any physical education class, or athletic practice or competition, for which the teacher, coach, or referee is responsible until both of the following occur:

 

A.

The student's condition is assessed by a physician or other healthcare provider authorized by the Board, in accordance with requirements set forth in R.C. 3313.539(E)(2), to assess such a student.

   
 

B.

The student receives written clearance that it is safe to return to physical education class, or athletic practice or competition, from a physician or other healthcare provider authorized by the Board, in accordance with requirements set forth in R.C. 3313.539(E)(2) to grant such a clearance.
