Family Voices Indiana Can Help Connect Students to Community Services

The US Departments of Education and Health and Human Services sent a letter to governors, Chief State School Officers, state health officials, and state Medicaid
directors, accessible at www2.ed.gov/policy/elsec/guid/secletter/160115.html,  recognizing the role that healthcare coverage and health services play in ensuring all students are ready and able to learn and recommending action steps to better coordinate educational and health services for all students and their families.  And, the agencies released a new toolkit that details five high-impact opportunities for states and school districts to support stronger communities through collaboration in the education and health sectors.  You can get the toolkit at www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/safety/healthy-students/index.html.
