Height and Weight Measurement (BMI)

School Nurse Survey

Act 935 of 2015 requires all districts to complete and submit the School Nurse Survey. This survey is in two parts. This data will also provide you the information that Act 935 requires you to report to your school board.

Special Health Care Needs Module for Special Education

This module is part of the Core Curriculum for Special Education Paraprofessionals. At least one Registered Nurse (RN) from each school district should receive Facilitator Training from the Community Health Nurse Specialist in the Educational Cooperative serving your school district. Once the RN has completed this training, then they are able to provide the Special Health Care Needs training for their district's special education paraprofessionals.

The Paraprofessional Training PowerPoint is to be presented in its entirety. Then the RN will be able to provide student-specific training of the procedures specific to the school's student population.
