  1. The storage and maintenance of epinephrine auto-injectors and medication for respiratory distress on school campuses and campuses of institutions of higher education.
  2. The training of school personnel and school volunteers, and of personnel and volunteers at institutions of higher education in the administration of epinephrine auto-injectors. 
  3. The training of school personnel and school volunteers, and of personnel and volunteers at institutions of higher education in the administration of a medication for respiratory distress.
  4. A plan for trained school personnel, school volunteers, and personnel members or volunteers of an institution of higher education to be on each school campus.

The committee's goal is to examine and review the administration on a campus of a school district, an open-enrollment charter school, a private school, or an institution of higher education of:

  1. epinephrine auto-injectors to a person experiencing an anaphylactic reaction
  2. medication for respiratory distress to a person experiencing respiratory distress.
