Asthma

The 77th Texas Legislature enacted House Bill 1688, which amends the Education Code to entitle a student with asthma to possess and self-administer prescription asthma medication while on school property or at a school-related event or activity. The bill specified the conditions under which a student is entitled to possess and self-administer asthma medication. If a physician feels it is medically necessary for a student with asthma to carry and self-administer prescription asthma medication, the student must have on file in the school nurse's office an Asthma Action Plan form provided by the State of Texas. This form can be obtained from the school nurse. The Asthma Action Plan must be filled out each year by the student's prescribing physician and must be signed by both the prescribing physician and the parent. The prescription label must be on the inhaler/medication.
