The purpose of this guide is to educate school personnel about effective diabetes management and to share a set of practices that enable schools to ensure a safe learning environment for students with diabetes, particularly those who use insulin to control the disease (all students with type 1 and some with type 2 diabetes). The school health team and the training approach for schoolbased diabetes management explained in this guide build on what schools already are doing to support children with chronic diseases.
