Asthma Action Plan Required for All Students with Asthma
If your student has a history of asthma, effective January 1, 2017, Illinois Public Act 099-0843 requires schools to request an Asthma Action Plan (AAP) from parents of students with asthma. The asthma action plan must be completed by a doctor, kept on file in the health office and updated annually. If you currently have an asthma action plan on file for your student, no further action is needed for this year. If your child has asthma and does not have an Asthma Action Plan, please provide a plan to the School Nurse at your student’s school. Asthma Action Plan forms can be found below.
In addition to the plan, please sign the Parental Authorization indemnity form (below). If you have any questions please contact your student’s School Nurse.
