School-Based Health Center

What is a School-Based Health Center?

The School-Based Health Center (SBHC) provides on-site care for acute and chronic illness of school-aged children at North Clayton High School, North Clayton Middle School, Northcutt Elementary School, and West Clayton Elementary School. Arrangements have been created between the school district and Family Health Centers of Georgia that promote the health and educational success of students. The SBHC staff will provide pediatric care for students while working in a collaborative relationship with the healthcare technician at the school sites and families to:

  • Improve access to health care services
  • Promote prevention and early intervention
  • Establish a medical home and primary care physician
  • Provide education to students and parents
