  • Monitor compliance with Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) physical exam and immunization guidelines. 
  • Make referrals to community resources.
  • Conduct vision and hearing screenings as mandated by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
  • Maintain school health records as mandated by the IDPH and the ISBE.
  • Monitor and maintain 13 automatic external defibrillators (AEDs).
  • Collaborate with school social workers and psychologists to provide social-emotional support to students.
