Data Collection

School Nurse Data Collection

The Wisconsin School Health Services Report has been redesigned and expanded. Data no longer is being collected as part of the former and discontinued “Step Up Be Counted!” school nursing data initiative. Aggregate data will continue to be collected at the state level and reported to interested state and national databases. New for the 2019-20 school year is the data point on chronic absenteeism. 

Data collection will provide the Department of Public Instruction, state, and national stake holders with information regarding the delivery of health services to Wisconsin’s public and private school children. When high percentages of school districts submit data, it provides a snapshot of the health care needs of our state’s school-age children. This information is important in advocating for school health services to keep students safe, healthy, and ready to learn!

This report is strictly voluntary. Data is entered once per school district. Private or charter schools are invited to submit data if it is not already part of an aggregated district. No personally identifiable information is collected. Only one person from each district should total and submit data for the 2019-2020 school year. Contact information for this individual is for follow-up only.

Please note the definition related to each data point/question. Correctly reporting data insures validity and increases its usefulness in accurately representing Wisconsin School Health Services.

Please submit district data by July 15, 2020 by clicking on the link below. It is recommended you print out a copy (template) of the report and fill in the information before clicking on the link to enter the data. Once you begin entering data each completed page is saved, so if you must return to complete data entry at another time you may do so without starting over.
