School Health Overview

  • Recognizing that a student's health status is directly related to their ability to engage in the learning process is essential to building a foundation for all students to be their best, achieve their dreams, and make the world a better place.

    The School Health Program believes healthy children are successful leaders. The school nurse has a multifaceted role in the school setting. This role supports students' physical, mental, emotional, and social health and success in the classroom.

    CSD School Nurses are building leaders who bridge healthcare and education. The school nurse's role consists of the following:

    • Assessing the health needs of students, providing care for ill and/or injured students, managing communicable disease outbreaks, administering medications and treatments to students with health conditions, and maintaining student health records
    • Monitoring the immunization status of students following state laws and requirements.
    • Providing consultation on health issues related to Individualized Education Programs and Section 504 Accommodation Plans
    • Collaborating with community health resources to provide health and wellness education and resources to address pediatric health and safety issues.
    • Conducting hearing, vision, and scoliosis screenings to identify and refer at-risk students.
    • Teaching CPR and First Aid courses to school personnel.
