We believe that healthy children learn better and support student wellness.
Credentialed school nurses in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District work to complete State mandated screenings for hearing, vision, and scoliosis. We notify parents of incomplete mandated requirements for immunization compliance, school entry physicals and a dental exam for all Kindergarten students.
Our school nurses review physician orders for medications in the schools. For students with medical issues, we obtain/write student health assessments upon request, for IEP and 504's that has a medical basis.
Our school nurses provide consultation for communicable disease issues/outbreaks, and may review student attendance related to medical issues. We serve on the School Attendance and Review Board and provide representation at the Community Action coalition meetings. (SARB & CAC).
School nurses have provided in-service education and consultation to school staff/students regarding chronic medical conditions.
