AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the use of epinephrine
  by students

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. The education law is amended by adding a new section 921 to
read as follows:
  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-
TION EPINEPHRINE AND A DEVICE TO SELF-ADMINISTER EPINEPHRINE, SUCH AS AN
EPINEPHRINE AUTO-INJECTOR, DURING THE SCHOOL DAY AND DURING SCHOOL SPON-
SORED  ACTIVITIES  THAT OCCUR AFTER THE REGULAR SCHOOL DAY OR OUTSIDE OF
THE SCHOOL, WITH THE WRITTEN PERMISSION OF A  PHYSICIAN  OR  OTHER  DULY
AUTHORIZED  HEALTH CARE PROVIDER, AND WRITTEN PARENTAL CONSENT, BASED ON
SUCH PHYSICIAN'S OR PROVIDER'S DETERMINATION THAT SUCH PUPIL IS  SUBJECT
TO  ALLERGIC ATTACKS SEVERE ENOUGH TO DEBILITATE SUCH PUPIL. A RECORD OF
SUCH PERMISSION SHALL BE MAINTAINED IN THE SCHOOL OFFICE.
  2. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF LAW, RULE OR  REGULATION  TO
THE  CONTRARY  NO PARTY SHALL HAVE A CAUSE OF ACTION FOR PERSONAL INJURY
OR ANY OTHER CLAIM BASED ON THE USE OF AN EPINEPHRINE AUTO-INJECTOR BY A
SCHOOL DISTRICT OR BOARD OF COOPERATIVE EDUCATIONAL SERVICES, ITS AGENT,
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
regulations for the implementation of this act on such effective date.
