The Board of Trustees recognizes that good physical and mental health is critical to a student's ability to learn and believes that all students should have access to comprehensive health and social services. The Board desires to collaborate with local and state health, mental health and social service providers in order to offer integrated services at or near district schools. The district may provide preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic and/or rehabilitative health services on an outpatient basis at school sites.
