School-Based Health Center - Parent Survey
We are planning to open a school-based health center in the new Cañon City Middle School. Your responses to this survey will help us understand what kinds of student health services are needed, such as medical care, counseling services, dental care, etc.
As a parent or guardian of a Cañon City School District student, your opinion about needed health services is very important.
Cañon City School District, Solvista Health, and Valley-Wide Health Systems are part of the planning team for the new school-based health center. Students with a signed parental consent will be eligible to receive services at the School-Based Health Center.
A SBHC brings the healthcare provider into a school so students can avoid health related absences and receive the support they need to succeed in the classroom. SBHCs are staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of qualified medical and mental health professionals.
Services provided may include: physical exams, including sports physicals; immunizations; care for acute, minor injury and illness; management of chronic conditions such as asthma, allergies, and diabetes; counseling services; routine lab tests and throat cultures; prescriptions and medications; health wellness education; referral to community providers and agencies; and assistance to families with enrollment into Medicaid and CHP+.
Why School-Based Health Centers?
-Access to Health Care For All Students-
School-based health centers provide health care to all students of Cañon City schools who have parental permission, regardless of insurance coverage or ability to pay (often at no cost or low cost depending on services needed).
-Regular Preventive Care-
When health care is far away, expensive, or difficult to access, children are less likely to receive regular preventive care. School-based health centers offer care where the children are -- in schools.
-Keeping Children in School-
School-based health centers help keep children in school and ready to learn, treating acute and chronic health problems immediately and returning students to class as soon as possible.
-Strong Parent and School Support-
When parents give permission for their child to be seen at a school-based health center, they no longer have to miss work to care for minor problems. They know that their child will receive prompt attention from health providers trained at working with youth. School administrators and teachers are extremely supportive of school-based health centers because health centers allow them to focus on their role of educating students who are healthy and ready to learn.
To help us plan for the school-based health center, we would like you to answer a few questions about the health needs of your child. This information will help us decide what types of services and programs to offer at the school-based health center.
