3.10 Fentanyl Education

Students smiling, excited to go to class

Public school students in grades 6 through 12 now receive fentanyl prevention and awareness education. They receive instruction that is grade level appropriate on opioid use, including fentanyl, addiction, and methods for administering medicine that reverses an opioid overdose.

Districts must have an adopted policy regarding the maintenance, administration, and disposal of the medicine that reverses an opioid overdose at each campus with grades 6 through 12. They may opt to also have a policy in place for students below grade 6.
