Health Services

School Nursing is defined as "a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement and health of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning." (National Association of School Nurses, 2010)

Your Child's Health Matters

The Wylie ISD Health Services staff believes that the ability for students to learn is directly related to the status of their health. Students with unmet health needs will have a difficult time engaging in the educational process. Wylie ISD understands this and provides a professional registered nurse on every campus with the goal of promoting optimum health for all students and staff.
