Back to School Resource Library


JDRF believes students with type 1 diabetes must be allowed to manage their diabetes in a school setting by monitoring their blood sugar, eating appropriate foods and administering insulin. Your child requires appropriate school policies and a strong supportive network to help facilitate his or her life-sustaining health regimen. Teachers, parents, school administrators and health care providers must work together with the student to develop guidelines for management of their diabetes.

Please visit our Back to School Resource Library below to help you and your student cope with T1D at school:
