2013 Virginia Legislative Season
Public schools; cardiopulmonary resuscitation and automated external defibrillators. Allows school boards to require current certification or training in emergency first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for bus drivers; increases the number of staff required to have such training; and requires such training for those seeking initial teacher licensure, renewal of a license to teach, or a provisional teaching license, with a waiver for teachers with disabilities. For students, beginning with first-time ninth grade students in the 2016-2017 school year, the bill adds a requirement that recipients of the standard and advanced diplomas must receive training in emergency first aid, CPR, and the use of AEDs. The bill allows each local school board to develop a plan for the placement, care, use, and funding of an automated external defibrillator in each school. This bill is identical to HB 2028.
