Health Services
School + Health = Successful Students

The primary goal of the Health Services program is to maximize each student's potential growth and development. The services and the screening programs help to promote health and health education. School health services are not a substitute for the health care that parents/ guardians should provide. Rather than relieving parents/guardians of responsibilities, nurses devote attention to student's health, to inform parents/guardians of problems of which they are unaware, and to encourage them to utilize the services of their physician, dentist, or community health agencies. The procedures and the guidelines for the school follow the regulations and programs established by the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Department of State Health Services, The Texas Board of Nursing and UCISD policy
