  • Telehealth Pilot

    The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will provide a comprehensive school-based telehealth program encompassing physical telehealth services.
    The purpose of a school-based program is to expand a student's ability to access health care providers with:

    • a signed parental consent and 
    • a school medical expert.


    Telehealth allows a virtual health care provider to care for an individual without an in-person office visit, while remaining in school and focusing on learning.


    Pre Telehealth Visit

    • Parents sign and return the consent.

    Telehealth Visit Occurs when Student feels sick
    • Nurse initiates a telehealth visit when student visits the nurse office feeling sick.

    Post Telehealth Visit

    • An electronic summary of the visit is provided to the parent.
