Registered Opioid Overdose Prevention Program

The District has registered with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to become a Registered Opioid Overdose Prevention Program.

What does this mean?

In an effort to ensure the health and safety of its students and staff, the Baldwinsville Central School District will maintain and administer an opioid antagonist in its schools, specifically Naloxone, otherwise known by its brand name Narcan, for use during emergencies to any student or staff member experiencing a known or suspected opioid overdose regardless of a previous history of opioid abuse. In addition to the school nurse, the District will permit volunteer, unlicensed school personnel who have received the requisite NYSDOH-approved training to administer Naloxone on-site during the school day.
