Regulatory & Legal

Could a student health service or school safety lawsuit cost your school system half a million dollars?

Obviously, and several million more. The unfortunate fact is that healthcare delivered in a school environment is subject to many federal and state regulations that are sometimes unknown or even conflicted.

Furthermore, and maybe worse, your schools’ health policies or the treatment delivered may conflict with accepted evidence-based medical practices.

So, how do you get up to speed on that? We can help. Our exciting new manual was developed specifically for school administrators, superintendents, school boards and board attorneys, and school nurse leaders.

Our unique manual, Legal Resource for School Health Services, is an evidence-based and time-saving reference that addresses over 50 legal issues impacting the delivery of health services in the K-12 school environment and provides guidance for regulatory compliance—as well as defining the issue and responsibilities of school health providers and administrators.


In the pages of Legal Resource for School Health Services, you’ll find the latest research on such vital school health legal issues as:

• HIPPA/FERPA
• Section 504/IDEA
• Minors Rights
• Legal proceedings and refusals
• Noncompliant, non-responsive on health issues
