The Baldwin County School District is pleased to announce that it was selected by the Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) for the Leading Edge Award. The Leading Edge Award highlights school districts that are leading the way in ensuring students are competitive in an ever-changing global market. The award recognizes unique achievement in innovative design and implementation of projects and programs by local school boards that are having a significant positive impact on students’ achievement and engagement.
The nomination for the GSBA Leading Edge Award highlighted the Bee Well Clinic and the innovative initiatives that have been put in place such as the telehealth service that the clinic now offers at all of our schools.
The Bee Well Clinic came into being through a partnership with Communities In Schools and Georgia College. It is part of a $2.3 million ‘Wraparound Baldwin’ Federal Grant. The clinic offers healthcare for Baldwin County School District students, their families and district employees. The school-based health clinic is in operation four days a week and is staffed by Community Health Care Systems, Inc. (CHCS) which is a federally qualified health center that provides quality care regardless of insurance or ability to pay.
