The Leander school board will vote next month on whether or not unassigned EpiPens will be stored in nurse's offices.  The district's Brad Mansfield says these would be available to any student, with or without a prescription.

"It gives us the option of having that epi-pen on campus to administer," said Mansfield.

If the board approves, grant money would be used to cover the cost of the EpiPens themselves as well as the annual cost for physician oversight.  Four would be given to each campus.
