Missouri Kids Count

Last week, Missouri Kids Count (MKC) launched the new Missouri KIDS COUNT website in conjunction with a new tool for data and reports, Missouri KIDS COUNT Data, from the Office of Social & Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA) - University of Missouri. We hope that you will utilize these two web sites often and please share these new resources with partners and colleagues. With your help, it is hoped a continuous network will develop and expand to share MO KIDS COUNT data, information and resources.


Controlling Bed Bugs in School Environments NEW

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Bed bugs continue to show up in schools across the nation. Their arrival can cause headaches for everyone from the administration to the nurse and facility manager. This presentation discusses the challenges bed bugs present and your important role in protecting the students and staff.  Bed bugs are uniquely different from most indoor pests. Few pests evoke such strong emotional responses and present such a management challenge. Successful bed bug management requires a proactive strategy and begins by engaging and educating the entire school community on how to recognize and stop them.  Explore with us your role in a district-wide bed bug action plan. Round out your bed bug education by reviewing prevention and control tactics that are consistent with the smart, sensible, and sustainable guidelines of a school Integrated Pest Management program. Join us and become empowered to help keep bed bugs out of your school!


Trained Diabetes Personnel in Missouri Schools (Cade’s Law)-Webinar
This webinar is designed as a resource for school nurses throughout the state. The purpose of this webinar is to provide school nurses in Missouri with a framework for training staff as Trained Diabetes Personnel (TDP). House Bill 675, passed and signed into law in 2013, provides an opportunity for Missouri public schools to train staff to assist in the care of students with diabetes while at school. Although this is optional for schools and districts, the intent is to help support student learning by ensuring safe and effective diabetes management for students at school
