Medical Review Process

The evaluation of a child’s known or unknown health or medical conditions and the determination of whether these conditions affect the ability to learn.

  1. A WCISEC member district conducts a domain meeting to determine the need for a Medical Review and that they would like the WCISEC Certified School Nurse to complete this review.
    • The following questions can be asked to determine if more information is needed:
      • Where there complications during pregnancy/birth?
      • Has your child had frequent ear infections?
      • Has your child ever had an injury or accident that required medical attention?
      • Has your child required medical care from a doctor/nurse practitioner in the last 12 months?
      • Does your child take medication?  If so, what medication and what dose?
      • Is there anything in your child’s health history that we have not covered that you feel would interfere with his/her ability to learn?
  1. The WCISEC member district submits the signed domain paperwork to Anita Fulkerson at (opens email window).
  1. The forms are processed and forwarded on to the WCISEC Certified School Nurse Andrea Ratermann.
  1. The Certified School Nurse contacts the student’s parents/guardians and has them fill out and return the following information:
    • Authorization to Release/Obtain Information Form (for each doctor, including specialists)
    • Student Health History Form
  1. The student may be observed by the Certified School Nurse.  The Certified School Nurse will review the student’s medical and education records.  The parent/guardian will be contacted for a short interview and follow up from the observation/record review.
