We are excited to be opening a new clinic in Rogers High School this fall. This exciting grant from Kaiser Permanente will allow us to provide medical and behavioral health services to over 1500 students, plus; staff, parents, and siblings after school hours right on the North Spokane campus.
Health centers in schools have been associated with better attendance and higher grades.
The clinic is slated to open by November 1, and will be funded by Kaiser Permanente for three years, as well as an additional $165,000 raised by neighborhoods in the Rogers High School area.
Fewer than two percent of Washington’s schools have health centers on their campuses.
