First Aid (JGFGA)

The district may provide appropriate first aid and CPR training for identified personnel. This training may be provided as a part of the district's in-service plan or other program established by the board.

First aid and CPR may be administered to students only by those school employees qualified by training approved by the district and then only in case of emergency. School employees shall not attempt to treat any student injury after the initial treatment of emergency first aid. The district will not assume liability for employees acting outside the scope of their authority under these policies.

Approved: NOVEMBER 18, 1996


Personnel identified by the district as eligible to receive first aid and CPR training may include those who are regularly assigned to the work site such as: the building principal or head teacher, the building secretary, the physical education instructor, and other personnel as the district may identify.

First aid shall be limited to the applying of simple bandages or infection preventatives and to any justifiable emergency aid such as stopping excessive bleeding to prevent further injury, disability or death.

Neither diagnosis nor treatment, except under emergency conditions, are within the responsibilities of school personnel, since school personnel are not trained to make what are essentially medical decisions.

At least one person in every school building in the district shall be qualified to administer first aid and CPR.

Approved: NOVEMBER 18, 1996
