Coordination & Support for Healthy Schools and Students


About Public Health Coordination

The Regional School Safety Center works collaboratively with the AESD Network, the Department of Health, and OSPI to support statewide PreK-12 COVID-19 response and mitigation efforts, address other emerging infections and conditions of a public health significance, and coordinate recovery and post-pandemic planning efforts among local education agencies. We work closely with the School Nurse Corps, Prevention and Intervention Services Programs, and Local Health Jurisdictions.

Services we provide

  • Technical assistance to support COVID-19 testing related activities and other public health initiatives that lay the foundation for future public health response.
  • Support with pandemic and post-pandemic planning, response, and recovery activities, including prevention and mitigation strategies.
  • Connections to resources and best practice models.
  • Facilitate connections among schools and regional public health partners.
  • Function as regional conveyors of public health information and feedback.
