Nonpublic School Health and Security Program


The Nonpublic School Health and Security program provides funds for school nurses, other health services, and for school security for nonpublic schools that participated in the BOOST Scholarship Program in fiscal year 2023. By providing necessary resources and support, the NSHS Program provides funds to ensure schools can deliver quality education while prioritizing the health and safety of their students.

The importance of school health professionals and security measures in nonpublic schools is recognized as essential for maintaining a healthy and safe learning environment. School nurses provide immediate medical attention, medication administration, and response to health emergencies, ensuring the overall well-being of students. Likewise, other health professionals such as mental health professionals also play an important role in fostering a supportive school environment conducive to learning and personal growth. The safety of schools is supported by the NSHS Program through security measures such as surveillance systems, alarm systems, and/or the presence of trained security personnel.
