Public Health has opened registration for the 2022 King County School-Based Health Retreat! Registration is open to King County School-Based Health providers and staff. This is not a public event.
Zoom registration is required and can be done here.
The Retreat will be held virtually via Zoom on Thursday, October 6 from 9am-noon. The event will promote networking, idea sharing, and collective learning. The tentative agenda is as follows:
|9-9:15am||Welcome from School-Based Partnerships Team|
|9:15-9:45am||Plenary session with Public Health Community Health Services Division Director, Vazaskia Crockrell speaking to this year’s theme, “Better Together”|
|9:45-10:15am||Social connection and reflection|
|10:15-11:45am||“Mapping Your SBHC’s School and Community Partnership Ecosystem” with Youth Development Executives of King County (YDEKC) |
It takes a comprehensive, complementary, and well-coordinated range of programs and services to ensure every child has what they need to learn, grow, and thrive. When school-based health centers, community organizations, youth, families, schools, and districts partner to provide these supports in a community, we build our collective capacity for systems change at the same time. If a partnership ecosystem is “the network of interconnected organizations and adults who provide a system of supports for students,” then who are the people and organizations in your school-community partnership ecosystem, how are they connected, and what are you doing to strengthen individual relationships? In this interactive virtual session, participants will begin to create a map of the relationships within their school-based health ecosystem and identify what types of partnership and collaboration they are engaged in (or aiming for). Our guiding tools from YDEKC’s School and Community Partnership Toolkit will provide you with resources to explore during the workshop and to apply after the session in depth. This workshop is designed for leaders at all levels within school-based health centers, as well as those in schools, school districts, and community-based organizations who are developing or managing partnerships between schools and community-based organizations.
Welcome back to school and we look forward to seeing you October 6!
