  Section 1. The education law is amended by adding a new section 921 to

  S 921. PUPILS AFFLICTED WITH SEVERE FOOD OR OTHER ALLERGIES. 1.    THE
BOARD  OF  EDUCATION  OR  TRUSTEES  OF EACH SCHOOL DISTRICT AND BOARD OF
COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL SERVICES SHALL ALLOW PUPILS WHO HAVE BEEN  DIAG-
NOSED  BY A PHYSICIAN OR OTHER DULY AUTHORIZED HEALTH CARE PROVIDER WITH
A SEVERE FOOD OR OTHER ALLERGY TO CARRY AND USE THE  PRESCRIBED  MEDICA-

A SCHOOL OFFICER, EMPLOYEE OR VOLUNTEER AT THE SCHOOL OR A  SCHOOL-SPON-
SORED  FUNCTION,  PROVIDED THAT SUCH USE WAS PERFORMED REASONABLY AND IN
GOOD FAITH.
  S 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred twentieth day after
it shall have become a law; provided, however, that effective immediate-
ly the commissioner of education is authorized to promulgate  rules  and
