A non-PA parent helping your school develop it's policy with regard to how PA is dealt with in the school?

Another PA parent helping your school develop it's policy with regard to how PA is dealt with in the school?

The school solely developing policy with regard to how PA is dealt with in the school?

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

If there was a public outcry, and parents fighting the policy established by the school and the PA parent in question, yes, I would appreciate a nonPA parent intervention.
But in cases where everything is quiet, it should be strictly between the school and the parents of the child.

In my board, the policy was developed by others before my time. I really don't have a problem with that. I don't think it matters who develops the plan or policy. However, the policy or plan then needs to be discussed with the parent to make sure it meets their needs and the needs of their child and adapted for a child's specific needs, if necessary.
Just my opinion.

You know, every single school I've had to deal with in Quebec already had a plan, and the plan was *not* open for discussion with the parents. One private school even told me to get lost, instead of agreeing to look at "the plan".
The attitude of the school system here is what got us to homeschooling. We are asked to surrender our kids, and keep our mouth shut.
I don't know where Arachide is these days, but hats off to her for having started an allergy committee in her school.
