Training Overview

How many of your students have food allergies? Protect your school with legally sound practices.

The CDC estimates eight percent of K-12 students (about two per classroom) have food allergies. In a bustling school full of students, there is a lot to keep track of, but, as the new school year begins, it is vital that you ensure your school keeps all of them safe.

Both law and science have a lot to say about how educators must address food allergies. You need to learn the necessary steps to comply with the current regulations and protect your students.
