Health Services Department aims to strengthen the educational process of students by maximizing the quality and quantity of in-class time and decreasing the incidence of health-related absenteeism by both students and staff through advocacy, disease prevention, health promotion, and by removing health barriers to learning.

Health Services Department Goal

The goal of the Health Services Department is to improve the physical and mental health of each student by providing comprehensive health services, supplemental health education, and promoting a healthy school environment. This will be accomplished through continued effort on everyone’s part including parents/guardians, community health agencies, teachers and staff, and our own administration. The school nurse will ensure this coordinated care takes place at the campus level with the assistance of faculty and staff.

Who is responsible for the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and the community-at-large?

It is the campus nurse, a health specialist, which is an active member of the educational team and who is concerned with the whole child, consequently; promoting optimal physical, mental, emotional, and social development. Currently, UISD employs a total of 52 Registered Nurses, 4 Licensed Vocational Nurses, 25 Health Assistants, 1 secretary, and 1 administrative assistant to meet the many needs of 45 school campuses, Cherish Center, Step Academy, PEP, JJAEP, district offices, and the service area.
