The DHS Asthma Action Plan, now with a proper parent/caregiver consent statement with release of school and school district liability (bottom of page one), can be downloaded free of charge at: // In partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Asthma Action Plan has been translated into Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Armenian. These versions will be available at: // In addition, a related resource is now available to help local asthma coalitions and other community members who work with schools to understand the content and implications of AB 2132, a new law which went into effect in California as of January 1, 2005 that allows students in California schools to carry and self administer their own asthma medication. The PDF fact sheet you can download here, prepared by California Breathing (CDHS-EHIB), will help schools understand the law’s requirements as well as some factors parents, physicians and school nurses should consider in allowing students to carry their own medication.
