Pupil health: opioid antagonists and fentanyl test strips.

Abstract

Existing law requires the governing board of any school district to give diligent care to the health and physical development of pupils. Existing law authorizes a school district, county office of education, and charter school to provide emergency naloxone hydrochloride or another opioid antagonist to school nurses or trained personnel who have volunteered, and authorizes school nurses or trained personnel to use naloxone hydrochloride or another opioid antagonist to provide emergency medical aid to persons suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering, from an opioid overdose, as provided. This bill would authorize school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools to develop and adopt a policy that allows pupils in middle schools, junior high schools, high schools, and adult schools to carry a federally approved naloxone hydrochloride nasal product or any other federally approved opioid antagonist, as provided, for the emergency treatment of persons suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering, from an opioid overdose. The bill would, for those local educational agencies that choose to develop and adopt a policy, to include, at a minimum, a requirement that a pupil has received instruction in the administration of the federally approved naloxone hydrochloride nasal product or other federally approved opioid antagonist. The bill would require public middle schools, junior high schools, high schools, and adult schools that are operated by a local educational agency to (1) stock and distribute fentanyl test strips, as provided, (2) notify pupils about the presence and location of fentanyl test strips, and (3) allow pupils to carry fentanyl test strips, as provided. To the extent the bill would impose additional duties on local educational agencies, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.
