    CareDox Helps School Nurses Better Manage Student Health

    Starting in December 2018, families in Seattle Public Schools can access student health information online using the family portal in the district's CareDox system.

    In use at the district since 2017, CareDox is a secure, comprehensive digital health platform school nurses use to document student care, keep students safe, and connect with parents and guardians. CareDox is used by hundreds of schools in the U.S. and adheres to both FERPA and HIPPAA regulations to safeguard student health information.

    The CareDox portal replaces the paper-based student health forms used by the district with an electronic form that parents and guardians can fill out online.

    The online portal provides many benefits, including:

    • Update your student’s health information, both for start of school and as needed throughout the year. Parents and guardians only complete the full form once and then simply update student information as health needs change.
    • Access your student’s health information securely on your mobile devices, such as a smart phone or tablet
    • Receive optional notifications from the nurse about care provided to your student during the school day.
