Five More Charter Schools Have a School Nurses

Five DC public charter school campuses now have a nurse to support students and promote health and wellness. With these new additions, 78 public charter school campuses now have a full- or part-time nurse, and every school has staff trained to administer medication to students. The campuses with a nurse include:

  • Cesar Chavez Parkside Middle & High School
  • DC Scholars PCS
  • Inspired Teaching PCS
  • Lee Montessori PCS
  • Next Step PCS

School nurses play a critical role in our education system. Having a school nurse means that students who have or develop a serious health problem may receive an immediate diagnosis or treatment. Not too long ago, a missing school nurse was the rule and not the exception. However, DC public charter schools are making strides in ensuring that students have access to a school nurse.

By the Numbers

  • 67 campuses are served by Children's School Services
  • 9 schools have private nurses
