A-954/A-3641

Establishes School Asthma Protocol Task Force.

NJEA supports the committee substitute for A-954/A-3641 (Oliver, Giblin).  This bill would establish a statewide School Asthma Protocol Task Force to develop guidelines for implementing a school asthma protocol and making other recommendations to make schools more asthma friendly.

The task force would include a certified school nurse, to be recommended by the New Jersey State School Nurses Association.  We believe having a certified school nurse on the task force is important in order to help inform other task force members of current practices and procedures in schools and provide input on the impact of new policies.

NJEA urges your support of A-954/A-3641.
