8452 Policy_Automated External Defibrillators_AED

The Board of Education has determined that it may enhance school safety to have an automated external
defibrillator (AED) placed in building(s) within the School District.
An AED is a heart monitor and defibrillator that:
    A. Is capable of recognizing the presence or absence of ventricular fibrillation or rapid ventricular tachycardia and
        determining without intervention by an operator, whether defibrillation should be performed;
    B. Charges and, at the command of the operator, delivers an electrical impulse to an individual’s heart.
The Board directs the Superintendent to develop procedures that govern AEDs, including the use and placement of
the AED. The Board also directs the Superintendent to review the procedures, as appropriate. The AED device(s)
will be located at school buildings for use by individuals with proper AED training.
