SCHOOL HEALTH SERVICES
School Health Nursing Services Program was developed jointly by the Duval County Public School System and the Florida Department of Health in Duval County (FDOH-D) as part of the total School Health Services Program.
The School Health Services Program is intended to minimize health barriers to learning for public school students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. It addresses day-to-day student health needs, emergency health needs, and in-school management of chronic and acute health conditions like diabetes, asthma, allergies, and epilepsy. In-school care management helps to ensure that student health conditions do not prevent students from attending school.
The School Health Services Manual is updated at least every two years, however, additional revisions may be made as necessary.
