Defines "school personnel". Provides that, except for willful or wanton misconduct, school personnel (rather than school or youth camp personnel) may not be held liable in a criminal or civil action for application of a topical sunscreen product if the topical sunscreen product is available to and used by the student (rather than student or camp participant) in accordance with the Act.
