Policy No. 3418 Medical Recommendations by School Personnel to Parent(s)/Guardian(s)

The Provo City School District Board of Education recognizes that the decision for a student to see a health care professional or use medication is a parental/guardian concern. In working with students, school personnel may be in a position to make or give recommendations to parents/ guardians which impact their children’s education. As a general rule, all non-medical school district personnel should refrain from discussing and making recommendations to parent(s)/ guardian(s) about perceived student medical needs.

The purpose of this policy and procedure is to clarify for school personnel and parent(s)/ guardian(s) the recommendations or directions that school personnel may make or give to parent(s)/guardian(s) about seeing health care professionals or using specific medication for their children. The board directs the superintendent to develop procedures to implement this policy.
