In December of 2013, the Michigan Legislature passed legislation that requires local school districts to have at least two epinephrine auto-injector devices in each school building beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.  As part of the legislation, local school districts are also required to develop and implement a policy for the training, possession, and administration of epinephrine auto-injector devices that is consistent with the Michigan Department of Education’s medication administration guidelines. 

Recently, the MDE issued an addendum to its previously issued Model Policy and Guidelines for Administering Medication to Pupils at School.  The addendum provides guidelines for responding to an anaphylaxis emergency, as well as a sample policy. 

A copy of the Addendum to MDE’s Model Policy and Guidelines for Administering Medication to Pupils at School can be found in the Legal References – Guidance Documents – “State” section of this website.
