The Dublin Unified School District Health Services Department is responsible for the health needs of the students in the district. The DUSD has District Nurses who serve all of the students in the district and each school site has a Health Services Assistant (HSA) in their Health Office. A District Nurse is a licensed Registered Nurse who possesses a Public Health Nurse Certificate, has completed the additional requirements for and possesses a current credential in School Nursing, and is Master's degree prepared. District Nurses are uniquely qualified in the preventive health, health assessment and referral procedures for students within the school setting. They are in the position to strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children.
Parents can help in the success of their child by communicating with the District Nurse and HSA, any health related barriers, which may affect their child’s ability to learn. By identifying health- related barriers to learning and offering assistance in the removal or modification of these barriers, students can perform to the best of their ability. Often times, this is accomplished by working together with the student, their family, physician, teachers, and the school support staff.
