Healthy students are more likely to attend school, are better able to focus in class and are more ready to learn, ultimately earning better grades and achieving more.
Together we can:
Improve student health and safety through health services and care coordination.
Health services at school keep students safe, present, and engaged. Care provided by school nurses improves responsiveness to students’ changing health care needs.
Reduce health-related barriers to learning.
Creating a healthier school environment supports students’ well-being, which builds a solid foundation for learning and provides health benefits that can last a lifetime.
Ensure kids are healthy and ready to work.
Healthy students who achieve academically are better prepared to contribute to Washington’s diverse workforce.
