The district's plan was discussed Wednesday afternoon by the board of education. The plan allows students to carry and self administer their asthma or allergy medication with permission from a parent or guardian and a copy of their prescription.
Mike Carlson, whose daughter died of a severe allergic reaction while at school, spoke at Wednesday's meeting.
"This policy that you're changing, you'd have to be an idiot to oppose this. I'd just like to thank everybody for looking into it," Mike Carlson said.
The new policy also includes a plan for handling students with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
