Health Services Overview

  • District 203 Health Service Philosophy


    School Health Services recognize that an individual’s education and growth is related to their physical, mental and emotional well-being.

    District 203 believes:

    • Each individual is valuable and the development of his/her potential is the first responsibility of education.
    • The acquisition of skills necessary to maintain a healthy state is a cardinal component of education.
    • An effective school health program requires the cooperative involvement of family, school, community agencies, and medical disciplines.
    • School Health Services provides a unique contribution to the development of concepts of wellness in students, families, and community.
    • A maturing student should be able to face social situations and life problems with increasing judgment as to his/ her role and acceptance of it. Recognition of health issues should be fostered as a civic responsibility.
