Year One Cost Example
As an example, a school district with two high schools, each with 4 staff in its student health clinic who see all incoming students, could offer SPORT Prevention Plus Wellness.
The total cost for the school district to implement the program in Year 1 would be $6,984. The per student expense would be largely dependent on the size of the student population and the number of students accessing the clinics annually.
