I just read thru what has been said. Thru my working career, I had to work with the ADA in many situations. So I hope I can give sage advice. For the future.
First thing it’s great that the teachers are working with you and your daughter. Can’t tell you how important that is. I think you need to get any and all paperwork in place now that allows her to use the iPhone as a medical device. Very important! It sets precedent. Even if you don’t need it because the school staff is supportive now, she will change schools and it may not be the case in the future! It only takes one bad apple to ruin the bushel. But now you can meet with the principal and have thier help in making things easier for the future. That is a great resource to have on your side! You may even want to meet with the school superintendent to help pave the way forward… By doing so, you have the powers that be forewarned and familiar with the rules and regulations ahead of time! So if an issue comes up as soon as they check into it, they already have an answer for the curious or resentful person(s), who might create issues in the future. You may never need to use this, but if you do you end up having the principal, the superintendent, and possibly the school board on your side. That’s is if you ever need it! But if your not proactive, you and your daughters health care may suffer while you get all this in place! By you I mean having to leave work for unexpected meetings… etc.
That and protocol will be in place for any other children in the future. Good things all around to be proactive now. You might even be able to get superintendent to have a laminated card your daughter or any other student can carrythat gives them permission to carry/ use the iPhone. This will be able to stop the problem, before the issue ever comes up.
You will be protecting her( your priority), and helping future students! With the help of the school and it’s governing body behind you, no well meaning, but uniformed teacher can interrupt her daily care! The most that can happen is an hour or two of “ confiscation” of thier phone and after class, one trip to principals office and problem solved. Back in business once again and no more future interruptions. Teacher may be put out, but nothing they can do! Supervisors have spoken, before the issue ever came up. Conversely, by not getting things in place, it could take weeks and months to get this straight. Your daughter and any other student could suffer needlessly! You may also find out if a plan is already in place and all you need to do is enroll your daughter in it and waahla! Problems solved.
Worth checking into no matter what I think!
