School Health

Florida Department of Health in Volusia County

The School Health Program serves all the school age children in Volusia County in both public and private schools.

Through an agreement with the School Board, a minimum of a Health Support Technician is provided for every public school. A cooperative program between the State Health and Education Departments provide nursing and health support technician services to DeLand High, Southwestern Middle and Starke Elementary schools.

To achieve our purpose, we provide vision, hearing, nutritional and scoliosis screenings, health assessments, emergency treatment, first aid, specialized skilled direct care, home visits, parent, faculty and physician conferences, educational programs, immunization and record monitoring and a large dose of TLC.

We are partners with the community and the school system in creating healthy, happy, productive future citizens. We know that healthy students are successful students.
