Children with Medical Complexity

Return to School for Children with Medical Complexity

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has partnered with Restarting Safe Education and Testing (ReSET), knowing that there are critical conversations happening in our communities about how to help children and school staff safely return to school this Fall. In this constantly changing environment, we hope that you will keep children with complex health needs in mind when making these important decisions.

To help our communities with these decisions, ReSET has developed a list of the top 10 priorities for safe return to school for children with complex health needs. These priorities were elicited from over 1,100 ideas from 460 families, family advocates, school staff, clinicians, and administrators across Wisconsin.

As a central principle, the safety of children with complex health needs requires the safety of all children and staff at school.

These priorities and downloadable resources for families, school staff, and health care providers can be found on the Healthy Kids Collaborative website.

The website includes:

-A one page overview of the top 10 priorities
-Family Q&A document
-Sample health care provider letter to schools
