When a child at school isn’t feeling well, they go to the office and someone takes their temperature. While that simple test can tell whether the child has a fever, it doesn’t explain exactly what’s wrong.

Iowa’s schools are taking the temperature of many of their students – in the form of tests – three times a year for similar reasons. When the results come back below a designated benchmark, that tells educators that something may be wrong, and the school goes to work to diagnose the issue and put a recovery plan in place.
