ACCESS to Comprehensive School-Based Health Services for Children and Youth, 2000-2001.
ACCESS, Spr 2000-Win 2001
This document consists of four consecutive issues of a newsletter presenting information on public policy and research of interest to school-based health centers (SBHCs) for children and youth. The spring 2000 issue explores why some SBHCs are closing and student support for SBHCs. The summer 2000 issue addresses the use of SBHCs in alternative schools and also presents data from a national census of SBHCs. The fall 2000 issue provides advice to SBHCs on creating a compelling message and addressing opposition. The winter 2001 issue (the final issue of the newsletter) describes the launch of the Center for Health and Health Care in Schools, which replaces Making the Grade, the national grant program to establish new SBHCs through state and local partnerships. This issue contains parting words from Making the Grade grantees, along with a special insert on continuous quality improvement in SBHCs. (EV)
