Kids bring their whole life to school with them… and it doesn’t fit in a locker.

  • Every student faces life challenges that impact his or her ability to learn.
  • Supporting kids and addressing health issues such as hunger, stress, harassment, substance use and unintended pregnancy can greatly improve their ability to learn.

There is a research-based link between students’ physical, social and emotional health and their ability to learn…


Why Partner?

SBHCs And Other Health Professionals Partnering With Schools

  • “Our world and our nation have changed; so too have our schools. Today, more than ever, school health programs could become one of the most efficient means available to improve the health of our children and their educational achievement” (Kolbe,2005 p.226)

Schools Partnering With SBHCs

  • “The best of teaching cannot always compete successfully with the challenges many students face outside of school” (Lee-Bayha & Harrison, 2002 p.1)

What We Know: The health-academic outcomes connection




Standardized test scores

Health Risk




Substance use

Mental health

Poor diet

Behavioral Problems




Stressors to Child Health and Learning Readiness

  • In 2005, 9% of U.S. children had no health insurance
  • 5% of U.S. children had no usual place of health care
  • 6.5 million children have diagnosed asthma
  • One in five children have a diagnosable mental disorder
  • 35% of uninsured children had no dental contact in two years
  • 7% of children had ADHD
  • Children with fair or poor health status were six times as likely to have learning disability and be absent 11 or more days from school

(Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics, 2007; National Center for Children in Poverty, 2007; U.S. Department of Education - National Center for Education Statistics, 2006)


The Terri Story… Asthma

Terri has asthma. It is not under control and she misses many days of school because of it. She doesn’t really know what triggers her asthma, but she hardly ever participates in physical activity. Her grades are getting worse because of her absenteeism.

Connecting Professional Communities For Children

Childhood Asthma

Nearly 73,000 Oregon children 18 and under currently have asthma. Asthma prevalence in Oregon continues to rise and is higher than the U.S. average.

_______ County’s asthma prevalence rate is __%, compared to Oregon’s rate of 9.9% and the US rate of 7.9%



Health Implications

  • About 14% of 8th graders and 9% of 11th graders with asthma reported missing at least one day of school because of asthma in the past month (Oregon)
  • Children in fair or poor health such as those with uncontrolled asthma were six times more likely to have a learning disability and be absent 11 or more days from school (Nationally)
  • Disrupted sleep caused by asthma contributes to poor school performance (Nationally)
  • Asthmatic children have higher rates of grade failure than non-asthmatics (Nationally)
  • Asthma is more common in low-income and minority populations. These groups are also at risk for higher rates of fatalities, hospital admissions and emergency room visits. (Oregon)
  • Oregon children were hospitalized for asthma more than 550 times in 2006.Children ages 0-5 have the highest rate of asthma hospitalizations. (Oregon)

Education stakeholders ask:

    • Do school health programs detract from, or complement the academic and social mission of schools?
  • Advocates of school-related health programs ask:
    • If our programs are unable to demonstrate their educational value, will they be able to sustain and expand their current place in the health care safety net?

Oregon’s Children

In Oregon, 12% or over 110,000 children are uninsured.

68% of SBHC clients reported that they would not have received health care without their SBHC

School-based health centers are staffed by licensed health professionals, and do not replace the important work of school nurses.


A Snapshot of Oregon’s Children

  • 42.6% of public school students are eligible for free/reduced price lunches
  • 24% of Oregon children ages 6 – 8 have untreated tooth decay
  • 13 out of 1000 children are victims of abuse or neglect
  • Last year, 27% of 9 - 12th graders were overweight or at risk for overweight.
  • In 2006 18% of Oregon’s children live in poverty, 40% are low-income
  • In 2005, 13% of Oregon children ages 0 - 17 had been diagnosed with asthma
  • 21% of students changed school districts in school year 2005 – 2006

(OHT 2007, BRFSS 2005, Children First for Oregon County Data Book 2006)


Lake Research Partners Oregon Results

  • The majority of voters consider all tested services with the exception of prescribing medication important.
      • Health education around eating right and exercising, and counseling for kids with obesity and other eating problems, and mental health services, including grief therapy, peer pressure, bullying, and suicide prevention.
  • Support also based on the belief that SBHCs would provide care to uninsured and underinsured children who would otherwise not receive services
  • Support for mental health services is also high, with 80 percent of voters saying these are important services to provide
  • Voters look with roughly equal numbers for stable funding from the federal government, insurance companies, and paying more in federal taxes to pay for these centers.
  • Strongest messages “Provide Care”, “Smart Investment”, “Studies”, and “Disaster Support”

How can SBHCs aid in creating a continuum of care for Oregon’s youth?

  • Provide a solution to access barriers such as transportation, distance, and clinic hours inconvenient to parents
  • Bring community resources to the student
  • Support students, teachers, parents, administrators, and other health professionals by keeping children healthy and in school
  • Aid in identifying health issues early in a safe environment
