Students with Chronic Illnesses: Guidance for Families, Schools and Students

This Guidance Sheet presents positive actions schools and families can take to address multiple chronic diseases at once using the same action steps. The guidance sheet is brief-a one-page document front and back-and the suggestions given are both practical and low cost. It is designed for possible use as a checklist for those who wish to rate their current level of activity or to monitor progress toward achieving a higher level of activity. This resource should help schools design a more coordinated approach in meeting the needs of students with chronic illnesses and can facilitate school efforts for attaining compliance with applicable Federal laws.
