Now Accepting Applications to Join a 12-Month Learning Collaborative to Improve School Health

The School-Based Health Alliance (the Alliance) invites states to apply to participate in a 12-month Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN) focused on making measurable improvements in the health of students during the 2020-21 school year.

The CoIIN is part of the School Health Services National Quality Initiative (NQI) funded by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau. A CoIIN is a professional learning community of multidisciplinary teams working together to address a specific, complex challenge. Participating state teams in this CoIIN will have the opportunity to advance the quality of their school health services by networking with other state teams, receiving expert technical assistance and coaching, sharing best practices and lessons learned, and tracking progress toward key benchmarks and improvement goals, including:

  • Improving the quality and sustainability of health and mental health services delivered to students in schools;
  • Expanding access to school-based health and mental health services to a greater number of children and adolescents; and
  • Working with state leadership to increase policies and programs that promote quality, sustainability, and growth of school-based health services

Applications are due May 1st, 2020. Learn more about the initiative here and apply here.
