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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  1  of  section  916 of the education law, as

follows:
  1.  The  board  of  education  or trustees of each school district and
board of cooperative educational services shall allow  pupils  who  have
been  diagnosed  by  a  physician  or  other duly authorized health care
provider with an asthmatic condition or another respiratory  disease  to
carry  and  use  a prescribed inhaler and self-administer inhaled rescue
medications to alleviate respiratory symptoms or to prevent the onset of
exercise induced asthmatic symptoms during  the  school  day  on  school
property  and  at any school function as such terms are defined, respec-
tively, by subdivisions one and two of section eleven of  this  chapter,
with  the  written  permission  of  a physician or other duly authorized
health care provider, and written parental consent. The written  permis-
sion  shall  include  an attestation by the physician or the health care
provider confirming the following: (a) the pupil is diagnosed with asth-
ma or another respiratory disease for which inhaled  rescue  medications
are prescribed to alleviate respiratory symptoms or to prevent the onset
of  exercise  induced  asthmatic  symptoms;  and  (b) that the pupil has
demonstrated that he or she can self-administer the  prescribed  inhaled
rescue  medication  effectively.    The  written  permission  shall also
include the name of the prescribed inhaled rescue medication, the  dose,
the  times  when  the medication is to be taken, the circumstances which
may warrant the use of the medication and the length of time  for  which
the inhaler is prescribed. A record of such consent and permission shall
