For Educators

Educators play a critical role in a child’s everyday routine. School personnel including teachers, principals, assistant principals, guidance counselors, parent coordinators, paraprofessionals, school nurses and volunteers engage with students and their families to promote academic achievement in all grades.

Teachers can’t do it all! But, sometimes common problems in the classroom and hallways usually extend beyond “bad behavior” and could be indicators of certain health issues. Resolving health issues in school can have a positive impact on attendance and focus during the school day. Explore the topics below to learn more and find resources for your school.
