SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. The Slippery Rock School Board has voted not to let teachers hand out fluoride tablets to students.

Nancy Moser, president of the Slippery Rock Education Association, says the teachers were worried about the legality of handling the prescription medicine.

For the past 15 years, teachers have been giving out one fluoride tablet daily to the students who wanted to participate in the program.

The school board will decide next month whether to continue the program.

Superintendent Lee Beaton has recommended the program be discontinued.

Slippery Rock is the only school district in Butler County that has the program.
