At Tuesday's School Board meeting, the board approved memorandums of understanding with both agencies.

The board revised the District's health services plan and outlined the roles and responsibilities for how the plan will be implemented next school year.

This comes after the School Boards decision to cancel its agreement with the Florida Department of Health-Bay County last school year.

Kara Mulkusky, Director of Student Services for Bay District Schools, said, "The main point in moving forward this school year will be the fact that we have a collaborative partnership with all three agencies, and we will really look forward to having both the County Health Department school nurses, as well as PanCare's LPNs and health technicians in our schools."

Mulkusky says the partnerships will provide a wide range of health services to students.
