One excerpt:
Individual Health Care Plan Emergency Action Plan & 504 Plan
An Individual Health Care Plan (IHCP) (Appendix B) puts in writing what the school can do to accommodate the individual needs of a child with a life-threatening allergy. Prior to entry into school (or immediately after the diagnosis of a potentially life-threatening allergic condition), the parent/guardian should meet with the school nurse to develop an Individualized Health Care Plan. This plan details the preventative steps a school will take to help protect a
student with life-threatening allergies.

Included within the Individual Health Care Plan is an Emergency Action Plan. (See Appendix C). The Emergency Action Plan details specifically what steps staff must take in the event of an emergency. For school staff purposes, the Individual Heath Care Plan and the Emergency Action Plan together are components of a 504 Plan.

Parents may request a 504 Plan for their child at the beginning of each school year. The 504 Plan is a legal document providing assurances about the necessary steps the school will take to help prevent an allergic reaction and what steps the school will take in the event of a specific emergency. Each parent should check with their own district and see what protocols/procedures or guidelines the individual school district have and utilize that procedure.
