The Department of Health Services is comprised of 87 point of service locations (also known as “Health Offices”) throughout the school district and one central administrative office serving greater than 42,000 students, families, school staff and leadership, and the Ƶapp community. By promoting effective partnerships, we work with the school community to provide health and wellness services that keep children healthy and attending school. Health Services is a key partner in achieving high quality educational outcomes and reducing health disparities in the Ƶapp community.

Mission:

The purpose of school health services is to reduce or eliminate health-related barriers to education for all students and provide evidence-based care with an emphasis on safety, wellness, and advocacy.

Vision:

Health Services advocates for a healthy child to ensure effective learning.
