House Bill 3428 requires all school districts to maintain a supply of an opioid antagonist, a medication that can be used to reverse an opioid overdose, in a secure location. Naloxone should be given to any person who shows signs of an opioid overdose or when an overdose is suspected. For the 2024-25 school year, schools are mandated to provide instructions on the dangers of fentanyl to students in grades 9-11 per House Bill 3924.
