School Based Health Clinics

Bleckley County School District offers the opportunity for your child to see a physician via telemedicine for a primary care visit or follow up for medication management.  They can also visit a dentist at school for routine screenings and cleanings.  We also collaborate with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to provide specialty care via telemedicine and Georgia Outreach to provide tele-counseling services.

You can learn more by watching our video https://www.bleckley.k12.ga.us/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=390563&type=d&pREC_ID=video&showMore=1&titleREC_ID=10045978 or by talking with your school nurse or by contacting our Rural Health Network Development Director.
