School Health Services
Colton School District acknowledges that health is vital aspect of student well being and contributor to success in the academic setting.
The National Association of School Nurses Board of Directors defined school nursing as:
"A specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning."
The school nurse case manages children with chronic health issues and serves on a multidisicpinary team to assist in minimizing health realted barriers to academics and provides support to population based services.
