New Resources

  • A new 2018 report, Transforming the Financing of Early Care and Education, published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), outlines a framework for a funding strategy that will provide reliable, accessible high-quality early care and education for young children from birth to kindergarten entry.
  • With generous support from Kaiser Permanente, the School-Based Health Alliance has fashioned an innovative resource based on experiences from the Hallways to Health project—a four-year initiative that joined 13 school-based health care programs across the nation to explore the potential of school-health partnerships to catalyze a school-wide wellness agenda. This pioneering resource can guide school health advocates as they create, implement, and sustain school-wide wellness efforts modeled after the Hallways to Health program. The online toolkit contains everything from best practices to tools and case studies from our Hallways to Health partners so that you, too, can apply their ideas in your own school health settings.
  • The National Quality Initiative data has helped school-based health center (SBHC) providers, administrators, and advocates across the country tell the story of SBHCs with data and improve the care they deliver. Participants will be able to download a report in early 2019 that will show your SBHC’s data and how programs compares to others in a particular state and around the country. These reports can help identify priority areas and deliver the highest quality of care. To report your data, please visit this link and select “Enter Clinical Performance Measure Data”.  Then, explore this brand new toolkit to help you strategize for improvement.
