Our Nurse Coordinator oversees the registered nurses on each campus. They follow protocols and precautions when dealing with infections disease. Our clinics are able to monitor students' temperature and document symptoms. A student who is running fever or vomiting is isolated from other students/adults to the extent possible until picked up by a parent. Patient confidentiality is maintained in accordance with Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Texas school and child-care facility immunization requirements are determined by the state legislature and set by the Texas Department of State Health Services, in conjunction with the Texas Education Agency.
Maintaining adequate immunization rates in schools is critical to preventing disease outbreaks and ensuring the health of Texas children.
The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is granted authority, by Texas Administrative Code, Title 25, to set immunization requirements by Texas Education Code, Chapter 38.
