             The Franklin County Health Department, Frankfort Independent Schools and the Franklin County Public Schools have joined forces to implement School Nursing Services.  

        The American School Health Association defines school health as all the strategies, activities, and services offered by, in, or in association with schools that are designed to promote students' physical, emotional, and social development.  Since children spend more time at school than anywhere else other than home, the school can have a major impact on their health and their health behaviors.  Teaching children about health and providing a safe and healthy environment for all children is the goal of school health programs. 
        Academic success is an excellent indicator for the overall well-being of youth and a primary predictor and determinant of adult health outcomes.  Leading national education organizations recognize the close relationship between health and education, as well as the need to embed health into the educational environment for all students.
