Managing Asthma in Schools: Guidance and Policies for Vermont’s School Nurses


The state of Vermont has defined several laws and policies to guide the management of asthma within schools. During the 2014/2015 school year, the Vermont Asthma Program conducted a statewide survey of school nurses to better understand their current asthma management practices and their information and resource needs to enhance asthma management within their schools. In response to the survey findings, this fact sheet provides asthma management guidance for school nurses based on the state’s asthma-related school laws, the Vermont Standards of Practice: School Health Services Manual, and national guidelines. The Vermont Asthma Program worked with the Vermont School Nurse Advisory Committee to ensure this fact sheet offers practical information and support to school nurses and other health staff in implementing required and effective asthma management strategies within their schools.
