Our goal is to provide you answers and resources to help make your experience with your child a positive one. If you ever have any questions about the services your child receives, or if you feel your child should be receiving services, please give us a call. We are always happy to help you.
Our health services specialist serves as our counselor and advisor for all student health problems. The services we provide are educational, preventive, and consultative.
The Wellton Elementary School health specialist maintains health records and renders first aid. In most cases, students must ask teachers for passes to the nurse. In emergency cases, the nurse will assist a student without a pass. Our health office operates under the following guidelines:
- The health office cares for first aid and emergency illnesses at school.
- Written permission from a parent or legal guardian must be on file in the health services specialist’s office before a student can take medication at school. The health specialist conducts follow-up services and consults with school personnel and parents.
- For illness or injury at school requiring immediate medical attention, the school health specialist will advise a parent to see their family physician.

No Child Left Behind
Under the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, all Local Education Agencies (LEAs) must maintain an LEA Plan approved by the state board of education. The LEA Plan is a legally binding document that provides details about the LEA’s implementation of No Child Left Behind and other related state-funded programs. The five performance goals for NCLB include:
- All students will reach high standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading and mathematics.
- All limited-English students will become proficient in English and reach high academic standards, at a minimum attaining proficiency or better in reading/language arts and mathematics.
- By 2023–2024, all students will be taught by highly qualified teachers.
- All students will be educated in learning environments that are safe, drug-free, and conducive to learning.
- All students will graduate from high school.
