Weber School District seeks to ensure all students are safe at school. It is the intent of Weber School District that all students who need medication at school are able to receive such medication, and that the administration of medication to students complies with state and federal law. The policy also ensures immunity from liability for authorized personnel.


It is Weber School District’s policy to allow medication to be administered at school under certain conditions. Personnel and students may store, carry, and/or administer medication in accordance with the procedures set forth in this policy. School personnel will not honor Do Not Resuscitate Orders at school or school activities.


a) Prescription medications: a pharmaceutical drug that legally requires a medical prescription to be dispensed.
b) Over-the-counter medication: any medication that can be purchased without a prescription from a licensed medical provider. This includes alternative, herbal, or homeopathic substances.
c) School personnel: any person, 18 years or older, who is employed by Weber School District and assigned to a school in the district.
d) School sponsored activity: an activity, field trip, class, program, camp, or clinic that is sponsored by Weber School District
e) Seizure rescue medication: a medication, prescribed by a prescribing health care professional, to be administered as described in a student's seizure rescue authorization, while the student experiences seizure activity.

iii) The medication is delivered to the school by the student’s parent/guardian, or authorized adult. A one week’s supply or more is recommended; AND
iv) The medication is in its original container, clearly labeled with the student’s name and dose. Prescription medication must be properly labeled by a pharmacy. Medication improperly labeled on the container cannot be accepted and/or administered to the student.

c) The side effects of a medication shall determine if the drug is appropriate to delegate its administration to school personnel. Any medication with known, frequent side effects that can be life threatening shall not be delegated. Medications that require the student’s heart rate, blood pressure, or oxygen saturation to be obtained before, during, or after administration of the drug shall not be administered by school personnel.
d) Narcotic pain medication may not be brought to school, kept at school, nor administered by school personnel.

Weber School District, in compliance with HB 358 and SB 102, has initiated a strict policy and protocol procedure for evaluating all third-party vendors who have access to any student data.  Interactive websites and apps collect student data such as location, name, phone numbers, likes and dislikes, routines, and much more.  Because of this, Weber School District wants to protect student data, both submitted by the student and generated by these third-party companies.  The most common use of student data is in marketing and research, and for selling to companies for a profit.  Because of this, Weber School District requires all third-party vendors to sign a Memorandum of Agreement, which specifies that all student data will be transmitted and stored in a secure way, that it won't be sold, and that it will be fully deleted upon request.

In order for a third-party vendor to be approved, they must go through the evaluation steps:

  1. Teachers and Staff will submit the website through Learn Platform (link above)
  2. A Review Committee comprised of Directors, Teachers, and the Curriculum Department will ascertain if the website is aligned with WSD.
  3. The SDSM will go through the privacy policy and terms of service of each submitted website
  4. The SDSM will also view all security protocols listed for the website, including login security. 
  5. The SDSM will then send the company a personalized Contract for signature (the NDPA)
  6. When the Contract is signed and returned to the SDSM, one of two things will happen:  A.  The website will be added to the approved list on Learn Platform.  B.  The website will be turned over to development for login sync with district servers and then added to the approved list
  7. After websites are approved, their metadata will then be uploaded to SDPC Resource Registry
