The app consolidates important information from schools and the Halton District School Board into one easy-to-access location.

Prevalent Medical Conditions

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Education released Policy Program Memorandum 161: Supporting Students with Prevalent Medical Conditions. School Boards across Ontario are expected to implement PPM 161 by September 2018. As a result, the HDSB has updated several Administrative Procedures to better support students who have Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes, Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders. With the revised HDSB procedures, students who have any of the listed prevalent medical conditions, must have a Plan of Care in place. Furthermore, the Plan of Care must be co-created by the student, parent and school staff.

If your child has a prevalent medical condition, please access the new Plan of Care documents at the hyperlinks below

Anaphylaxis

Asthma

Diabetes

Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders
