What we do:

Develop policies and procedures that protect and enhance student health, including coordination with other divisions that address student health issues.
Provide school physician services District-wide, concentrating on medically complex cases and students who do not have access to a regular health provider.
Provide staff and oversight to PTA vision clinics, and assist with establishing standards and quality assurance for student vision care activities.
Develop and implement quality assurance and performance improvement programs for health personnel.
Facilitate staff development and education on important and emerging student health issues.
Establish linkages with public and private community organizations and agencies to improve student access to health care.
