Collaborative Effort

The Kilmer-Sullivan School Health Center is a collaborative effort between Sullivan High School, Kilmer Elementary, Advocate Medical Group and CVS Caremark. The goal of the SBHC (School-Based Health Center) is to improve the physical and emotional health of students attending Sullivan High School and Kilmer Elementary School.

Guidelines

As required by the Illinois Department of Health and Human Services:

Students must have a signed parental/guardian consent form on file before they can receive most services at the SBHC. However, Illinois Consent and Confidentiality Laws allow minors over age 12 to receive sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment and pregnancy testing without consent of a parent or guardian. The staff of the SBHC considers parental involvement extremely important. We encourage all students to involve their parent or guardian in health care decision making.
