Alia Malik reports:

An agreement with the University Health System will open health clinics at two middle schools in the San Antonio Independent School District.

Trustees for SAISD unanimously approved the deal Monday night. Both clinics will serve students and district employees in portable buildings on school grounds.

Superintendent Pedro Martinez said the goal is to open the first clinic in August at Tafolla Middle School on the West Side, followed by another in January at Davis Middle School on the East Side.

University Health already runs school-based health centers in Southwest and Harlandale ISDs.

This collaboration offers so much promise and potential — but for data security risks as well as improved healthcare.  The news story states:

SAISD will pay for the cost of facilities. With their vote, trustees approved $218,000 to expand internet capacity and security at both locations so the clinics comply with federal medical privacy law.

Fingers crossed.
