SB 161 (Education Code section 49414.7), which became effective on January 1, 2012, authorizes non-medical school employees with voluntary emergency medical training to provide, in the absence of a credentialed school or licensed nurse, emergency medical assistance to students with epilepsy who are suffering from seizures. This law also applies to charter schools.
The California Department of Education ("CDE") was required to post guidelines on the implementation of SB 161 by July 1, 2012, but was unable to fulfill this requirement through the normal rulemaking process. In the mean time, the CDE has posted Emergency Regulations, which are currently in effect. Additionally, FAQs regarding SB 161 are posted on the Department of Education's website here. More information from the CDE on SB 161 and its implementation can be accessed here.
On a related note, Education Code section 49414.5 permits non-medical school employees with voluntary emergency medical training to provide emergency care to students with diabetes who are suffering from severe hypoglycemia.
