    The mission of the Dublin City Schools' health services team is to actively collaborate with families, students, staff and community resources in order to promote the health and well being of every child.  We will intervene with actual and potential health problems through direct and indirect care, so that we may help reduce the spread of communicable disease, increase attendance and place the focus on life-long learning and health. 
     
    Dublin City Schools employs seven Certified School Nurses who rotate between assigned schools. For daily care, basic first-aid, and medication administration, there is a full-time, trained Clinic Aide in each school clinic.
