School children--Health and hygiene; School nursing


In a time of rising taxes and taxpayer discontent, public school districts must minimize spending. Yet, they must provide health services to students. This paper compares the costs and benefits of using paid health aides and volunteers to help provide these services under the supervision of a school district registered nurse. The preferred option in terms of least cost is determined, as well as the option of choice when benefits are also weighed, in a time of normal budget restraint and in a time of severe budget restraint.
