Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Care of Students with Diabetes Act. Requires a parent or guardian to submit a diabetes care plan for a student with diabetes who seeks assistance with diabetes care in the school setting (whether a public or a private school). Provides that a delegated care aide shall perform the activities and tasks necessary to assist a student with diabetes in accordance with his or her diabetes care plan. Requires training for school employees and delegated care aides. Requires that an information sheet be provided to any school employee who transports a student for school-sponsored activities. Sets forth what a student with diabetes must be permitted to do. Provides that a school district may not restrict the assignment of a student with diabetes to a particular school on the basis that the school does not have a full-time school nurse, nor may a school deny a student access to any school or school-related activities on the basis that a student has diabetes. Provides for school employee protections against retaliation, civil immunity, and rights under federal law. Amends the School Code. In provisions concerning the administration of medication, provides that under no circumstances shall teachers or other non-administrative school employees, except certified school nurses, non-certificated registered professional nurses, and advanced practice nurses (currently, except certified school nurses and non-certified registered professional nurses) be required to administer medication to students. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill as introduced with the following changes. Makes changes to the findings. Makes changes to the definitions of "delegated care aide", "diabetes care plan", and "principal" and defines "health care provider". Provides that a diabetes care plan must be signed by a student's parent or guardian and submitted to the school for any student with diabetes who seeks assistance with diabetes care in the school setting, unless the student has been managing his or her diabetes care in the school setting before the effective date of the Act, in which case the student's parent or guardian may sign and submit a diabetes care plan under the Act (instead of requiring the diabetes care plan to be signed and submitted by a parent or guardian). Makes changes concerning what the diabetes care plan must include. Provides that parents are responsible for informing the school in a timely manner of any changes to the diabetes care plan and their emergency contact numbers. Provides that the principal shall facilitate compliance with the provisions of a diabetes care plan during all school-sponsored activities (instead of ensuring that the school has at least one delegated care aide present and available at the school). Provides that, in schools that have a student with diabetes, all school employees must receive certain training in the basics of diabetes care. Makes changes concerning diabetes care plans, training, assistance to delegated care aides, the duties of a delegated care aide, self-management, protection against retaliation, and civil immunity. Effective immediately.
