Potential reduction in school nurses for DC public and public charter schools

Taken from a message from Joshua Hertzberg, President of the West Education Campus PSCO:

Hi Neighbors and Parents,

If you haven’t heard, there is a movement in the works to change the way school health is provided by the DC Department of Health, including a potential reduction in school nurses. You can read a memo (http://dcps.dc.gov/sites/default/files/u23/School_Health_Services_Program_Update.pdf) from the Department of Health that lays out some of the improvements that they’re trying to make.

In my opinion, the improvements sound great, but don’t justify reducing school nurses to as little as 20 hours per week (half time coverage).

If you feel the same way, there are a few ways you can get involved:

Thank you
