The primary purpose of the school health program is the optimal maintenance, promotion, protection, and improvement of student, staff, and community health. The school health personnel work in collaboration with students, parents, educators, staff members, and other community resources to assist the student in developing competence to cope confidently with the complexities of life. The program is designed to assure a safe, healthy environment that is conducive to learning and to provide professional care for those who become ill or injured while at school.
