IPS recognizes the link between student health and academic achievement. For our IPS students to be successful, they must be healthy and ready to learn. Health services and school nurses are an integral part of the IPS school community, ensuring the health and safety of students and staff. Additionally, we understand the health needs of students today have increased in scope and complexity. Providing health services at our school campuses is essential to ensuring IPS students can flourish in and out of the classroom.
IPS provides a variety of health service models to ensure school campuses have access to full-time healthcare staffing. The programs and related services are run through our Unified Student Supports (USS), Health Services department and overseen by the district’s Director of Health Services.
