Position Statement on Documentation of the Relationship between School-Based Health Centers and the Academic Accomplishments of Students
National Assembly on School-Based Health Care
The purpose of this position statement is to clarify issues and suggest priorities relating to the documentation of the relationship between school-based health centers (SBHCs) and the academic accomplishments of students. Current national educational policies, such as the No Child Left Behind Act, are increasingly exerting pressure upon schools to document improvements in student achievement. With increasing competition for limited school resources, the continued vitality and viability of school programs, such as SBHCs, may depend upon their ability to demonstrate their contribution toward academic success. The National Assembly on School-Based Health Care (NASBHC) is committed to providing health center staff, researchers, educational professionals, and other stakeholders across the nation with comprehensive information and guidance regarding SBHCs and academic outcomes. A bibliography is included. (Contains 1 table and 1 footnote.)
