The Wisconsin Improving School Health Services (WISHeS) Project was a statewide collaborative project aimed at improving school health services in Wisconsin public schools. The Wisconsin Public Health Association (WPHA) and the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) were awarded a 5 year grant by the Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program, a component of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The goals of the WISHeS project were to improve the capacity of Wisconsin school districts and increase the competency of the individuals providing health services in those schools. Many of the resources developed as a result of the project are now housed on the Department of Public Instruction website.
The following procedures are available resources that may be used as part of your school district’s comprehensive training plan administered by your school district nurse or other professional health care provider. These resources were developed as part of the WISHeS Project.
