As you might have read in the latest FAAN news letter, Washington state has passed house bill 1128 which includes funds for the superintendent of public instruction to develop guidelines for managing students with food allergies. The full bill is at [url="http://www.leg.wa.gov/pub/billinfo/2007-08/Pdf/Bills/House%20Passed%20Le...."]http://www.leg.wa.gov/pub/billinfo/2007-08/Pdf/Bills/House%20Passed%20Le... ure/1128-S.PL.pdf.[/url]

Starting on page 153, line 24, is the specific text which says guidelines will be completed by March 31, 2008, for implementation in the 2008-2009 school year.

I was wondering for those of you who already have State guidelines for managing students with FA has it made it easier or harder to get a 504 plan set up in your school?

How do you feel towards the state guidelines that have been established in your state? Is there anything you think they missed or really should have included?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
