The SBHC State Program Office (SPO) recently undertook a review of the SBHC Standards for Certification. The goal of this review was to reexamine the 2014 Standards for Certification to (1) identify and address any areas in need of clarification; (2) update sections to align with current best practice; and (3) continue to adapt the Standards to support operations and advance quality healthcare in a school setting.

All Oregon State certified SBHCs will be required to meet the minimum standards outlined in the revised Standards beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.
