School Health Services for Administrators

Featured Image

Akron Children's School Health Services provides care and health education in schools throughout northeast Ohio. We collaborate with school districts to address the healthcare needs of their students to make a positive impact on school performance and ensure all children reach their academic potential.

We have a team of nurses and medical assistants who serve as liaisons among school staff, families, communities and healthcare providers. They promote and advocate for student health and wellness, and help manage patient populations and individual student health needs in the school setting.

Our program focuses on:

  • Providing flexible, cost-effective school nursing services 
  • Improving student attendance 
  • Addressing first-aid, emergency services and acute healthcare needs 
  • Administering medications and necessary procedures 
  • Meeting the healthcare needs of students with chronic conditions 
  • Implementing disease prevention and wellness programs to increase the overall health of the student body
  • Referring students who need help to the appropriate specialists 
  • Creating a safe learning environment for students 
  • Enhancing overall school health through community outreach
