Demonstration Project in School Health and Nutrition Services. Interim Report.
This demonstration project in school health and nutrition services is designed to show that through a coordinated team approach, students from low-income neighborhoods can be better served and improved utilization of existing community resources can be effected. To accomplish this goal, the following five basic programs have been developed and coordinated: (a) Nursing, (b) Speech and Hearing, (c) Guidance, (d) Health Aide (parent involvement), and (e) Transportation. Each of these five components serves teachers, parents, and students on an individual and coordinated basis. Team conferences are conducted weekly; coordinated parent and teacher and teacher programs are offered. The staff in each component works on an individual basis to provide teacher and parent conferences and to meet the needs of students. Efforts are coordinated with community agencies such as the county public health department. Data are being collected related to services rendered in service programs such as medical and dental treatment, the team conferences, and the parent involvement activities. Results indicate that through a coordination of efforts improved utilization of available resources is possible. (Author)
