Policy 8117
Adopted: March 14, 2006
Legal Ref: WS: 35-22-203(a)


Fremont County School District Number 25 upon receiving a written do not resuscitate order (DNR) will develop an individual health care plan for the student to address the medical needs stipulated within the order. A DNR order means simply do not implement cardiopulmonary resuscitation procedures (CPR) in the event of a cardiac arrest or respiratory failure. DNR is an order written by the student's physician (after discussion with and approval of the parent(s)/guardian(s)) and signed by the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) which instructs the staff not to resuscitate the student. This order can be rescinded at any time at the parent(s)/guardian(s)'s written request.

The DNR order will be maintained within the student's school records.

School personnel shall be made aware of and required to follow the administrative regulation regarding authorized DNR orders.
