The Division of Student Health and Human Services (SHHS) has the responsibility to provide support to the instructional program and reduce barriers to the academic achievement of students. Schools are encouraged to collaborate with city, county and community-based health and human services for improved child, youth, and family outcomes.
In order for a community-based agency or non-District personnel to render volunteer health and non-health services on a school campus, a completed and executed Agreement (Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) or Operating Agreement) and Service Delivery Application (SDA) must be on file with the Division of Student Health and Human Services. Each Local District has an Organization Facilitator (O.F.) that develops the agreement with the school site personnel and provider. The O.F. is responsible for verifying that the packet and documentation is complete and facilitates submission to the appropriate SHHS Department.
