Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP)   Eat Right - Be Fit - Achieve More Together

 Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP) includes these eight key components. It is designed to help young people grow into healthy and productive adults by focusing on their physical, emotional, social, and educational development, kindergarten through twelfth grade. An effective school health program is a working partnership between the schools and the community which includes the parents and families. Primarily, it recognizes that health and academic success go hand in hand.

School Nursing services include:


Preventive services, education, emergency care, referrals, and management of acute and chronic health problems. School nurses work diligently to prevent health problems and injuries as they ensure care for students. They work to:  

  • Minimize or eliminate health problems that impede learning.
  • Reduce the incidence of health related problems in order to maximize the quantity and quality of class time.
  • Support school staff in safe administration of medications in school.
  • Ensure compliance with state mandates for immunizations and physical exams required for school entry and attendance.
  • Increase the school community’s knowledge and behaviors in positive health, mental health, physical activity, and safety and nutrition practices.

Friendly Dental Van

The Friendly Dental Van (FDV) mobile dental program was founded by Dr. Gregory Abrams, a practicing dentist in Charlotte, in 2002 and has been in continuous operation for over ten years. The goal of FDV is to provide comprehensive dental services to those children who do not normally receive routine and ongoing dental care.

We offer comprehensive dentistry which includes the following:

Friendly Dentist Van tooth Dental Exams 
Friendly Dentist Van tooth Cleaning 
Friendly Dentist Van tooth X-Rays 
Friendly Dentist Van tooth Sealents 
Friendly Dentist Van tooth Cavity Treatments 

In addition to these services our Dental Van offers the complete restoration of the teeth that we find decayed, unlike other mobile dental services who offer only cleanings and screenings.

The contribution to a county's overall oral health can be dramatically impacted by this program as we follow the children from K-4 through middle school.
