HSSPC (Health Services Standards and Practices Committee)

School Nurse representatives from school districts, Ventura County Public Health representatives, and others with an interest in school health, meet monthly as a committee facilitated by the VCOE Comprehensive Health and Prevention Programs director. The group addresses issues relative to providing consistent, high quality student health services. 

In collaboration with district staff, agencies, organizations, the Ventura County Self-Funding Authority and SELPA (Special Education Local Plan Area), the committee develops policies, protocols, standards of practice, and standardized forms used countywide. "School Health Office Protocols", "Management of Students with Diabetes", "Guidelines for Management of Pediculosis (Head Lice)", "Health Office Assistant's Manual", and "Medication Authorization" and "Return from Mental Health Hospitalizations" forms are examples of documents produced by this committee for countywide use.

Vision: All students will experience lifelong achievement and quality health care.

Mission Statement: HSSPC will provide leadership on standards and best practices for quality health care services to support the lifelong educational achievement of students.
