How To Use Mobile Health Screening Tools in Your Reopening Plan

Clay Burnett

On-site health screenings help prevent exposure to illness and may be required by federal, state, or local guidelines. The question is:

How can your school streamline staff and student screening to create a safe learning environment?

The answer: use a mobile screening solution to...

  • Keep your staff and students safe
  • Create a statistical record
  • Make evidence-based decisions concerning reopening
  • Provide proof when communicating with families and stakeholders

Mobile health screening tools allow your authorized staffers to conduct quick screenings students and other staffers as they enter a building, facility, or sports training session. Beyond that, premier screening solutions, such as FinalForms, provide the school with a time-stamped, digital record for every student, every session, and every notation. 

Digital records may be studied, analyzed, or used by the school district to meet local, state, and federal reporting requirements, as well as to make decisions concerning transitioning from one reopening phase to another, reversing direction, or declaring an outbreak.

"As a superintendent, having data to back up decisions is essential," says Dr. Robert Hunt, Superintendent, Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools. "Knowing that a single click may allow you to access a record, inform a stakeholder, or provide a report certainly reduces potential controversies and liabilities."

Consider the sources that may ask for reports:

  • State Department of Health
  • Local Health Board
  • Contact Tracers
  • Insurance Providers
  • Legal Counsel

Consider the events that may require screenings:

  • Building entry
  • Homeroom
  • Clubs and Activities
  • Field Trips
  • Sports

According to the National School Board Association ("NSBA"), school district leaders should first follow guidance from state educational agencies and public health departments. After ensuring a school district is in compliance with federal, state, and local health protocols, school boards must face the challenge of preparing for both an outbreak and a reopening.

Unfortunately, time is a limited resource. School district leaders must adapt quickly using trusted resources and tools to help increase compliance with policies and procedures in order to create a safe school.
