Student Health

Health Services Department

The school nurse, a health specialist, is the member of the total educational team who is primarily concerned with the whole child: his optimal physical, mental, emotional, and social development. The primary objective of school nursing is to strengthen the educational process of children and youth by assisting them to improve or to adapt to their health status. In collaboration with other educators, the school nurse utilizes the school health program to contribute significantly to the fullest attainment of health and educational potential of each individual student.

Castleberry ISD strives to:

  • assist in assuring the attainment of optimum health for each student.

  • provide appropriate modification of the general curriculum to meet the needs of physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually handicapped students.

  • provide and maintain facilities and personnel that promote healthful living opportunities while students are under the school's jurisdiction and provide the curriculum offerings that will enable students to make intelligent decisions about personal, family, and community health.

The goal of the Castleberry School Health Program is to prepare the pupil upon maturity to assume the responsibility for his/her own health and the health of others.
