King County School Health
(School Based Health Centers)

What began in 1989 as a modest pilot program at Rainier Beach High School is now a model for an effective school-based health care system, serving over 10,000 elementary, middle and high school students each year across King County (and part of a larger Washington State network).

Funded initially by the Seattle Families and Education Levy, King County's system of school-based health centers is now funded by the Families, Education, Preschool, and Promise Levy (managed by the City of Seattle Department of Education and Early Learning), the Best Starts for Kids Levy and King County General Funds.

The WA State Dept. of Health also funds some school-based health center services. Services in King County-funded school-based health centers are coordinated by Public Health–Seattle & King County.

School-based health centers offer a comprehensive scope of services including asthma care, immunizations, family planning, and mental health counseling. In addition to addressing health care concerns, they also promote good health for a lifetime through good nutrition education, supportive relationships, and reinforcement of positive self-images.
