In an attempt to address health disparities, and improve the health of the whole child, the Omaha Public Schools and Building Bright Futures began working together on a plan that would provide quality health care for Omaha area students. The planning resulted in the implementation of school-based health centers (SBHC), which are on-site health centers that promote the health and educational success of school-aged children. Through this combined effort, they hope to reach students in the Omaha Public School district who: do not have access to quality health care because they lack a medical home or a routine primary care provider; are uninsured; or have chronic illnesses or conditions that cause them to miss school.. These health care issues can have a tremendous impact on a student’s ability to succeed in the classroom.
OPS, Building Healthy Futures and the participating organizations believe timely access to health services can greatly impact student attendance and educational achievement and the School-Based Health Centers can play a vital role in meeting this need.
The SBHC will be operated and staffed by the community’s federally qualify health centers, each serving four schools;
