                                                DO NOT RESUSCITATE ORDERS


Each request for the district to honor a do not resuscitate order (DNR) will be dealt with individually.

The district will develop an individualized health plan (IHP), or modify an existing IHP, for any student subject to a DNR. The IHP will be developed in conjunction with the parents; the student if appropriate; a school nurse and other appropriate staff; the student's physician; emergency medical personnel, if possible; and other specialists as needed. Ifthe student is receiving special education services pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) or accommodations pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team or 504 team will be involved in the development of the IHP.

In addition to the usual contents of an IHP, the IHP of a student with a DNR order will specify which life-sustaining procedures will be used by district personnel in the case of an emergency. Emergency medical personnel will be summoned in all emergency situations as required in Board policy . A copy of the DNR will be attached to the IHP and provided to emergency medical personnel.
