Report: Local Schools Missed Deadline for Medical Emergency Response Plan

Dover-Sherborn High was one of 125 schools in Massachusetts that did not submit a medical emergency response plan to the state on time.

The Dover-Sherborn Public Schools failed to meet the Sept. 1, 2012 deadline to turn in medical emergency response plans for its schools, according to a recent I-Team report on CBS Boston. 

Dover was one of 125 Massachusetts schools in 18 districts that did not get the emergency plans in to the state on time, according to the report.

Schools are required by law (known as Michael's Law) to submit to the state a plan outlining ways they respond to medical emergencies, including details on a rapid communication system, a list emergency contacts, methods for CPR and first aid training as well as the location of defibrillators.

The law was passed in May 2012 following the death of 16-year-old Michael Ellsessar, who suffered cardiac arrest while playing a Sutton High School football game in 2010.

Following the I-Team's investigation, Newton submitted the emergency response plans on Feb. 13, the CBS Boston report said.
