    Certified school nurses provide k-12 health services in our district with the support of a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse health room assistant. The certified school nurses are responsible for emergency treatment of accidental injuries and assistance to students who become ill at school. They also conduct a comprehensive program of health examinations and screenings in addition to maintaining up-to-date health and immunization records for each child.

    The State College Area School District provides the following health examinations and screenings:

    • dental inspection - grades k, 3, and 7
    • physical examinations - grades k, 6, 11, and new students who were not examined in the appropriate lower grade
    • hearing - grades k, 1, 2, 3, 7, 11
    • height and weight - all grades
    • vision - all grades
    • scoliosis - grades 6 and 7
    • color vision - on entry to school and as necessary
    • body mass index (BMI) - all grades

    Body mass index (BMI) most recent results can be viewed through the parent portal after January of the current year.
