SBHCs in Washington

National Context

The National School-Based Health Care Census is a triennial survey of school-based health centers (SBHCs). The national School-Based Health Alliance has conducted the survey for twenty years, capturing the growth and evolution of SBHCs across the country. The 2016-17 Census identified 2,584 SBHCs in 48 of 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Over the past twenty years, the number of SBHCs in the country has more than doubled—growing from 1,135 SBHCs in 1998.

In 1987, the Seattle City Council funded a three-year pilot of a school-based health center at Rainier Beach High School, and services started in 1988. This successful pilot paved the way for Families & Education Levy funding for SBHCs in Seattle and the growth of school-based centers across the state with diverse operational and funding models.

Today, there are more than 65 SBHC sites, sponsored by more than 25 healthcare agencies, in over 25 school districts—urban and rural—across Washington.
