Page 108 of the NH Every Student Succeeds Act States:

"Through collaboration with the NH School Nurses’ Association, the State

Coordinator will work with local educational agency (LEA liaisons) and school nurses to ensure homeless children and youth do not face barriers related to missing health related documentation. . . . As Specialized Instructional Support Personnel (SISP) school nurses are an integral part of student support and uniquely qualified and trained to assist the parent/guardian or youth in obtaining the immunization, screenings, or other required health records. LEA liaison and school nurse partnerships will ensure homeless students are provided access to health care services and the social, emotional, and behavioral supports necessary to achieve academic and personal success. "

Topics of discussion:

  • Conditional enrollment and Whose job is it to obtain medical documentation if you have enrolled a student and you don’t have it. (Nurse or liaison?)
  • Best practices in information sharing/confidentiality/data governance
  • Creating common language between nurses to identify health office visits (is this visit related to their circumstance of homelessness). 
  • What do the nurses need from the Liaisons?
