The School Health Program is a component of the public health system that provides basic health services to all public school students. All 67 counties provide basic school health services. The services include: health appraisals; nursing assessments; child-specific training; preventative dental screenings and services; vision, hearing, scoliosis, and growth and development screenings; health counseling; referral and follow-up of suspected or confirmed health problems; first aid and emergency health services; assistance with medication administration; and health care procedures for students with chronic or acute health conditions.

The goal of school health services is to ensure students are healthy, in school, and ready to learn. Additionally, school health registered nurses work closely with school staff and parents to promote healthy behaviors (such as, maintaining a healthy weight and choosing to be physical active) and reduce risk-taking behaviors (such as, eliminating the use of tobacco).

The School Health Program works closely with the Seminole County School District and community partners through the School Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) to support and promote the health of our students

SHAC Meeting Dates *Meetings are held from 2 - 3:30 p.m. at the Seminole County Health Department.  Meeting dates/times may be subject to change.
