Campus Locations

Each TISD campus has an assigned Campus School Nurses and Health Aides who works as a member of the school staff, within the framework of the school health program, to provide for the health needs of all students. Health Aides manage potentially emergent situations as well as provide daily care for students with chronic conditions, medically complex conditions and other needs requiring daily care in school.

Campus Health Aides:

  • Provide basic first aid and care for minor injuries and illness according to a detailed protocol
  • Administer medication to students according to board policy and district procedures
  • Take vital signs (temperature, pulse, respiration rate and blood pressure)
  • Perform vision, hearing, and scoliosis screenings according to state requirements
  • Assist students with disabilities as necessary
