Pursuant to Education Code section 49414.1, as of January 1, 2020, the governing board of a school district, county board of education, or charter school serving kindergarten or any of grades 1 through 12, inclusive, may (but is not required to) adopt a policy that permits a parent or guardian of a student to bring medical cannabis onto a school site and administer it to his or her child. Such a policy must be adopted at a regular board meeting and must contain several elements required in the law. It is recommended that you consult with legal counsel prior to adoption of any such a board policy.
Two bills approved by the Governor and signed into law on September 9, 2019, which will affect students with current or future medical immunization waivers.
