School Health Models

A variety of models are used to deliver school health services to students. These include health services delivered through school-employed providers, such as school nurses, school psychologists, occupational therapists (OTs), physical therapists (PTs), social workers, and counselors. In addition, health services can be delivered in school-based health centers and through partnerships with federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs), health departments, hospitals, via telehealth, mobile vans or in partnership with other community providers (including dentists, opticians, community mental health providers, etc.). 

For more information on ways to support the financing of these delivery models, see the Financing page.
