School Health Services

  • More than one hundred Boston Public School nurses provide for the health and safety of every student. Our smaller schools share a nurse, and no nurse has more than two schools. Each year the nurses are deployed based on a school's level of need. The School Health Services Department also has a BPS Early Childhood Special Education Compliance Nurse and a Nurse Liaison for Children with Special Health Care Needs. They can be reached by phone at 617-635-6788 or fax at 617-635-7937.
