CCPS Health Management Guidlelines

Many students who attend public school today have chronic health issues or disabilities. The school nurse is the health care professional at school that is responsible for managing the care of these students. CCPS has developed guidelines in conjunction with the Maryland Department of Education in order to ensure that these children obtain the care they need so that they can participate to the greatest extent in the educational program. The school nurse will use these guidelines in the planning and implementation of care at school. The school nurse will develop an individualized care plan for those students who require one. Students who require plans may include:

  • Medically fragile students who may have several healthcare needs,
  • Students who require prolonged healthroom visits or are seen multiple times per day, and
  • Student who have health care needs as part of a 504 or IEP
