School and Daycare from 2005

  1. As a school aide, I was asked to train to check blood sugars for a student. I'm concerned because I'm not a health care professional. How is this handled elsewhere? (20 Dec 2005)
  2. My daughter's school wants to drop my daughter's 504 plan. What can I do about this? (25 Oct 2005)
  3. My daughter's teacher won't let her go to the bathroom and some teachers send her to the nurse alone. What are my daughter's rights? (25 Oct 2005)
  4. I am newly diagnosed. My school says I have to do my diabetes care in the office. Am I allowed to do it somewhere else? (25 Oct 2005)
  5. Does a school nurse in the state of Texas have the right to contact a student's physician without parental consent to obtain medical information? (25 Oct 2005)
  6. If a child qualifies for a free and or reduced lunch in a school district, is the child also able to have their snacks provided for? (10 Oct 2005)
  7. Is it legal for the school to penalize my child by giving him/her a different version of a test for one missed due to a diabetes-related absence? (5 Oct 2005)
  8. For now, my sixth grader walks to the nurse to check her blood sugar. Does she have the right to test in the classroom? (21 Sep 2005)
  9. My fifth grader is capable of doing her own diabetes care. Is it reasonable to ask that she no longer needs supervision taking care of her diabetes? (6 Sep 2005)
  10. How do I find out how much diabetes care my son's private Baptist school must do? I do not know if the school receives Federal funding. (26 Aug 2005)

  14. Could you provide a guide for those of us who are sending our children with diabetes off to college, especially for those far from home? (27 Apr 2005)
  15. My son has attention problems. Could his eight years of high/low blood sugars have contributed to this? (26 Feb 2005)
