Georgetown ISD employs a registered professional nurse at every campus to serve as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers. Our registered nurses coordinate health services by identification, assessment, prevention and intervention in order to meet the medical needs of our students, who we believe to be our most valuable resource. Our goal is to promote optimal health for our students and to eliminate medical barriers that prevent them from reaching their educational potential.
GISD School Nurses serve as a resource to students, families and faculty by providing the most up to date information and instruction on health topics. They work to prevent the spread of communicable disease, maintaining health records on each student and prepare students to assume responsibility for their own health needs as they grow. Our nurses perform health screenings, refer for evaluation and treatment when appropriate and follow up to assure that students’ needs are being addressed.
We recognize the diverse health care needs of the children that we serve and strive to be an integral part of the multidisciplinary team that serves them and their families.
