School Health

School Health Services are provided as part of the School Health Program to appraise, protect, and promote the health status of students in public and eligible non-public schools. School Health Services supplement, rather than replace, parental responsibility to student health. The program is designed to encourage parental awareness of students' health status; discover and prevent health problems; and encourage utilization of physicians, dentists, and community health agency services.

Services include: nursing assessment, dental, vision, hearing, hypertension, and scoliosis screening; identification of health problems with referral to community resources; follow-up on all abnormal results; administration of prescribed medications, nursing care for medically complex children; home visits to assist families as needed; speakers and health programs in the classroom setting as well as the community; and assistance with communicable disease investigation and control.
