The goal of the Colquitt County School District Health Program is to promote the health and well-being of students in order for them to learn to the maximum of their ability.
The Colquitt County School District employs a full-time nurse at each elementary school and two nurses for the secondary schools. Preventive and emergency school-based health services are provided to students enrolled in preschool and Pre-Kindergarten through twelfth grade.
School nurses promote the health of students by providing vision, hearing, dental, and scoliosis screenings as deemed necessary, communicable disease control, and assessment for individual health problems and health education. The nurse also provides services for illness or injuries along with care for those with special health care needs such as diabetes, asthma or seizures. School nurses work with parents, teachers, social workers and other health care providers to develop health care plans for specific needs.
