About District Health

WEST ISD Health Services Department's

mission is to support student success, helping each person we touch reach his/her maximum health potential.

 

The school health program is NO substitute for the healthcare which parents should provide for their children.  Rather than relieving parents’ responsibilities, this program is established to encourage individuals to utilize the services of a private physician, dentist, optometrist, and/or community health agencies. 

 

The West ISD Health Clinics are designed to treat chronic health conditions (with proper documentation), and minor injuries and to act as a temporary “waiting room” for students who have become ill during the school day.  Should a student become ill, only the persons designated as an Emergency contact in Skyward will be allowed to pick up the student.  All telephone numbers MUST be updated immediately if changes occur during the school year. 

 

School nursing is a professional registered nursing specialty that involves identification, assessment, prevention, and intervention to remedy or modify students' health needs.
