I spoke with former School Board member Jeff Bergosh. He said the District uses a private company, Pediatric Services of America, that provides one health technician for every school, some of which maybe nurses. The larger schools are the ones to most likely have such a nurse, according to Bergosh. Sherwood Elementary had 614 students last year
I found the contract for Pediatric Services of America. It states the company will provide 47.5 health technicians and five heath technician floats. No mention of school nurses.
Just to be sure, we’ve made a public record request for the list of nurses and health technicians at every elementary school.
Why didn’t Superintendent Malcolm Thomas mention Pediatric Services of America?
