    I think that is one of the most useful resources the ADA has on it's site. ;)

    It deserves it's own thread :cwds: Thanks, Michelle.

    Great resource. Thanks for posting! I have a new friend that I met with a daughter in a different school district. Every district, every school seems to be a different story, a different battle. It is nice to have access to the law. That's tough to argue with!

    School problems

    My DGS goes to a private religious school and the new principal is making our lives miserable. Latest is he has to take all his shots in the office. Seems ADA doesn't apply to private schools unless they receive federal funds. It's the only decent private school for 30 miles. Is there no recourse for families like us?

    Not that this helps you, but there is a Texas state law for public schools in Texas stating that students can manage their diabetes anywhere on campus - but independently. Isn't your grandson only 8? I am not sure even at a public school in Texas he could do the shot anywhere. He would need supervision for the shot and to dispose of the syringe properly. The folks in the office probably have the time to deal with this better. The classroom teacher shouldn't have giving or supervising shots added to her list of duties.

    My son did his shots in the office at his private school. It was easier that way than carrying supplies or keeping them in the classroom. His school was small and the office was conveniently located. The office staff made sure he had the right amount.

    Is it not manageable for your son to do the shots in the office? Most do a single shot at lunch.
