LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Three districts have received state funding for school-based health centers that will promote health, wellness and academic achievement among public school students.

Recipients of the funds are Cord-Charlotte Elementary School in the Cedar Ridge School District, Malvern High School in the Malvern School District and Southside Elementary School in the Southside School District.

The three centers are among more than 20 statewide that receive funding.

Centers undergo a competitive application process. The facilities must offer physical health services, mental and behavioral health services and school health outreach programs based on student and community needs.

Each site also must have a health care professional onsite a minimum of 12 hours per week.
