 Mission
The mission of Health Services is to create and sustain a school environment that promotes and supports student achievement, health and well-being.

The model of health services in Minneapolis Public Schools uses a combination of Licensed School Nurses (LSN), Health Services Assistants (HSA) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN). LPNs and HSAs perform health office/clerical functions, care for ill and injured students, and carry out delegated nursing activities performed under the LSN's supervision.

The Licensed School Nurse is responsible for coordinating and managing the health needs of individual students during the school day as well as promoting health and safety for all students at a given site. They also provide training, delegation and supervision of the HSAs and LPNs.

Nursing Services Managers supervise the care given in school health offices. They are responsible for school nursing program planning, quality assurance, staffing, and responding to crises.
