As of this writing, there is an active piece of legislation—Senate Bill 95—that if passed, will give schools the authority to administer opiate antagonists to individuals believed to have overdosed on opiates. The law currently in place—63O.S. 1-2506.1—part of the Oklahoma Emergency Response Systems Development Act, allows first responders, including “medical personnel” at secondary schools and institutions of higher education, to administer the drug without a prescription“ when encountering an individual exhibiting signs of an opiate overdose."
Proposed amendments to the statute include changing the language to “schools including any public or charter schools, technology center schools and institutions of higher education." The bill would also expand the definition of "medical personnel at schools" to mean "a certified school nurse or any other nurse employed by or under contract with a school, any licensed practitioner of the healing arts or any person designated by the school administration to administer an opiate antagonist in the event of a suspected overdose pursuant to Section 2 of this act."
Get ready, people: Google has something new headed your way! They have recently announced that they’re going to release an Enterprise version of G Suite for Education. Some schools may never have any interest in this offering, but I'll explain what it is and why you may want to give it a look.
One of our goals is to make PD accessible and tailored to your needs. Creating innovative ways to support administrators, teachers and students is top of mind as we develop new offerings and possibilities. Well, you’ve spoken, and we’ve listened.
You made it! School's out, students are gone, and while you may have vacations planned, summer PD scheduled or you're finally reading those books you've been waiting to dive into all year, don't neglect one critical item: your school's social media accounts. Summer is a great time to engage with your parents and community supporters.
