School Based Health Care Toolkit

The following toolkit was designed as a joint effort between the Ohio Department of Education, Ohio Department of Medicaid, Governor’s Office of Health Transformation, Ohio Department of Health and Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. The goal in its design was creating a toolkit that gives tactical advice and resources to excite schools and care providers about school-based health care. They also hope to answer some questions about which schools and providers have asked for guidance (e.g. data sharing). Note: While most resources are appropriate for both school and provider audiences, some note the intended individual audience.


We hope you both use this toolkit as a resource to either begin a new school-based health partnership or augment one that already exists. If you have any comments or resources to add, please do not hesitate to contact the school-based health support team at

The toolkit answers questions like:

  • What is school-based health care and how can I use this toolkit?​

  • How do we get started?

  • How do we operationalize our partnership?

  • How can we ensure a sustainable model?​

  • How do we measure success?

  • Resources for reference
