Coordinated School Health includes health education and programming as well as nurses and clinics at each school. The newest addition to on-site medical services is telemedicine in each school clinic, which gives students and staff access to a higher level of care at school. In 2016-17, school clinics received approximately 15,500 visits from students, and 82 percent of students were returned to class following treatment. All ECS employees participate in annual training which covers bloodborne pathogens, AED, First Aid, antibullying, and response to anaphylactic shock with epinephrine. School nurses, coaches, teachers’ assistants, bus drivers and administrators participate in additional training as well. In addition to medical services, CSH supports a healthy learning environment with physical and nutrition education, mental health services, staff wellness programs, school gardens, and programming with community partners.
We encourage involvement from students, parents, teachers, and community members. If you have questions or suggestions, please feel free to let us know. Our aim is to make our schools safe and healthy places for children to learn and grow. For more information about the Coordinated School Health Model please visit the State of Tennessee Department of Education's Office of Coordinated School Health website and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
“The mission of Coordinated School Health is to improve students’ health and their capacity to learn through the support of students, families, communities and schools.”
