Washington Township Schools continues our collaboration with IU Health for placement and support of school nurses in the elementary and middle schools. The school health offices in these schools are staffed with either a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) or a Registered Nurse (RN) and supervised by an IU Health RN Manager and Washington Township Coordinator of Health Services. In addition, the District employs a Supervisor of Health Services.
The role of the school nurse is to provide first-aid for minor illnesses and injuries for students and staff. They monitor medication administration and maintain documentation for clinical records. They do not act in place of a physician or health care facility.
The Medical Assisting Instructors, students, and the Coordinator of Health Services in collaboration with WT school personnel will provide the state mandated vision screenings for grades 1, 3, 5, and 8. Additionally, Washington Township Speech and Language Pathologists will conduct the state mandated hearing screenings for grades 1, 4, 7, and 10. The nurses in the building will continue to complete any needed follow-up with parents/guardians related to these screenings. NOTE: Parents are responsible for notifying the school in writing if their child has an exemption, such as religious beliefs.
