Health services are an integral part of comprehensive school improvement, assisting all students to increase learning, achievement, and performance. Health services coordinate and support existing programs to assist each student in achievement of an optimal state of physical, mental, and social well-being. Student health services ensure continuity and create linkages between school, home, and community service providers. The District’s comprehensive school improvement plan, needs, and resources determine the linkages.
The superintendent, in conjunction with the school nurse, health advisory committee, public health nurse, school health team, etc. will develop administrative regulations implementing this policy. The superintendent will provide a written report on the role of health services in the education program to the Board annually.
