Those planning teams who found they were not ready earlier can receive Dr. Johnson's consultations, even after their grant period has ended.

 

The goal of this planning grant is support planning to reduce access to healthcare barriers for the children, faculty, staff, etc., by having a small “doctor’s office“ at the school to provide primary medical care, including mental/behavioral health care. Typically, schools convert a classroom with an external door or have a mobile unit very close to the school building. See https://youtu.be/DJ0tB2DR23A
