   self-administration  by  a  pupil  of  prescribed  asthma  medication,      
   provided that the parents or guardians of the pupil (i) provide to the      
   school    or    school    board    written   authorization   for   the      
   self-administration and (ii)  provide  to  the  school  board  written      
   certification  from  the  pupil's  physician  or  other State-licensed      
   health care provider that the pupil  has  asthma  and  is  capable  of      
   self-administration  of  medication.   Requires information concerning      
   the medication to be kept on  file.   Contains  provisions  concerning      
   liability.  Effective immediately.

          105 ILCS 5/10-20.35 new

   references from school board to school, and  makes changes  concerning      
   which health care providers prescribe medication,  what information is      
   to  be  provided to the school, and who is to provide the information.      
   Effective immediately.

   provisions concerning liability.
