The Virginia Diabetes Medical Management Plan has been updated!
Please choose from the following*:

Virginia Diabetes Medical Management Plan by Virginia Department of Education

Original Virginia Diabetes Medical Management Plan

*Note: After the posting of the new DMMP form the received notification by the Virginia Department of Education that there had been some concerns regarding the signature page that do not meet the law in Virginia. To rectify that Tracy White from the Department of Education worked with DOE staff to modify the document.  The new document has new language and only requires a signature on the last page. There were also some minor modifications in the Physical Activity section as well.  For those offices that are using the form outside of Virginia you may continue to use the original form posted.  We recognize that this is an inconvenience, unfortunately it is beyond our control.  Hopefully the new format will make life a bit easier for everyone and meets the needs of the school systems and the endocrinology offices.
