Medication Administration Requirements at School 


The administration of medicine is normally not a function of education, but if it does become necessary for a student to take medicine at school, the State of Illinois mandates that the following guidelines be followed: 


  1. Provide the building principal or nurse with the district medication form completed, signed and dated by the physician and the parent/guardian for prescription medication. 
  2. Non-prescription medication such as pain relievers, anti-inflammatories, antacids, antihistamines, and cough syrup/drops do not require a physician’s signature but all other information relative to the medication must be completed and signed by the parent/guardian. **It remains the discretion of school officials, including the school nurse, which items may be administered without a physician’s signature. 
  3. Medication must be delivered to the nurse’s office by the parent/guardian, unless prior arrangements have been made to independently carry an inhaler or epi-pen 
  4. School policy prohibits students from having in their possession prescription or nonprescription medication other than inhalers or epi-pens which have been pre-approved by the nurse. 
  5. Medication ordered by an MD must be delivered to the nurse in the prescription bottle with the pharmacy label indicating directions for administration.
  6. Non-prescription medication must be in the original container and administered according to label directions.
  7. Notification should be received when a drug is discontinued or a change in dosage or interval occurs. 
  8. Medication guidelines must be renewed annually
