This paper will examine students and their use of prescription medications when administered to students at school. The law requires that schools follow policies in regards to the distribution of drugs in school. Guidelines have been created to lead doctors, school administration, and health staff in the distribution of drugs to students at school. The administration of drugs to students is the responsibility of school personnel. Furthermore, prevention messages about the misuse of medications is beneficial for students. It is imperative that America develops a better legal plan with ramifications to ensure students use the correct prescription medication. A more effective method to record reliable and valid data needs to be incorporated.
