School Attendance and Health of the Rise with Hawai’i Keiki Program

Crossedposted from The Community Guide

Summary

Hawai‛i Keiki, a program formed through the partnership between the Hawai‛i Department of Education and the University of Hawai‛i at Mānoa, used The Community Guide to substantially improve student attendance and promote health equity. They provided schools with trained nurses and established CPSTF-recommended school-based health centers (SBHCs) to offer treatment and preventive health care. Before the SBHCs were established, 90% of students with illnesses or injuries were sent home. With Hawai‛i Keiki, 90% of these students are treated and sent back to class to learn.
