Student Health Information & Resources
There is a strong relationship between academic achievement and a child's physical, emotional and mental health. This link is the foundation for providing information on health services as an important component of a school program. School health services provide primary prevention aimed at keeping students in school through appropriate screenings, early identification of children at risk for physical, emotional and mental health concerns, and case management of students with chronic health concerns.
This page provides the following:
- Medical Order forms for Parent/Guardian to complete and submit to student's school if needed
- Immunization & Health Check Screening Requirements necessary for enrollment in Berkeley County Schools
- Links to student health services and resources in and around our community
We hope you will help join us in meeting the health needs of your student and positively impacting academic growth for all.
