J.D. Lever is building the foundation for students to reach their full potential and succeed as life-long learners.
It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net!
Medicine Medication (Policy JGCD-R)
If a student is required to take medication during school hours and the parent/guardian cannot be at the school to administer the medication, only the school nurse or trained designee will administer the medication in compliance with the following regulations:
Prescribed Medication
The parent/guardian or emergency contact designee is required to complete a District Medication Form and is required to bring the prescribed medication or controlled substances to the school.† In order for a child to be given a prescription medicine at school, there are two options that you may use:
  1. The childís health care practitioner may send to the school a copy of the prescription or a written statement from the health care practitioner that provides the childís name, name of the drug, the dosage, and the approximate time it is to be taken.
  2. The childís health care practitioner and the parent/guardian should complete and sign the Aiken County School Districtís Medication Permission Form.† The Districtís Prescription Medication Administration form is enclosed for your convenience.
