Kieltyka, Evelyn G.
The purpose of this manual is to provide guidance to interested Maine communities, school officials, parents, students and health care providers in the development of School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs). The manual outlines the mission and goals of an SBHC and makes detailed suggestions on the structure of a community-based advisory council to guide center set-up and advocacy for community acceptance. The manual then details SBHC organizational structure and staffing, funding and operating budget, health services offered and site development, legal issues, and data collection, quality assurance, and evaluation. The manuals' ten appendices outline issues related to implementing SBHCs, including council membership, the role of a consultant, job descriptions and qualifications, the Maine statute on consent of minors for health services, school readiness for an SBHC, sample center floor plan, Maine SBHCs, and needs assessment data collection guidelines for SBHCs. A list of resources is included. (JPB)
