Current diabetes regimens require more effort than ever before. The level of diabetes control students are able to maintain is affected greatly by their ability to care for their diabetes during the school day. This article reviews use of School Health Plans and Diabetes Medical Management Plans in schools. Students with diabetes, their families, health care providers and school personnel all have responsibilities that should be outlined in these plans. School nurses coordinate school-based diabetes care, provide training to school staff members, advocate for students and monitor implementation of students' school plans. Normal growth and development, prevention of complications and full participation in academic and social opportunities should be possible for students with diabetes. A variety of resources that support students with diabetes are described and referenced.
