The District Nursing Team is comprised of two district nurses: Yvette Blanc and Chloe Couvreux, who are both Colorado Registered Nurses with a nursing college degree and a special education license to practice as school nurses in Colorado schools. Yvette and Chloe cover the entire school district, working under the Special Education Director, and each overseeing the care of between 2,000 to 3,000 students. The team operates using a consultant model, relying heavily on the assistance and support of health assistants in the schools who perform various nursing tasks.
District nurses coordinate resources and training necessary for health assistants to care for students daily and closely monitor the health services they provide. The nursing team ensures compliance with state laws from the Colorado Department of Education and constantly updates and reviews policies in place to keep up with evolving student needs and regulations.
