The Maryland State School Health Council was
created informally by the State Department of
Health and the State Department of Education in
the 1950s. Formally reorganized in 1966, the
Council advises the Department of Health and
Mental Hygiene and the State Department of Ed-
ucation on the school health program. The Council
helps develop and maintain programs to provide a
healthful school environment, health and safety
instruction, and school health services. It also serves
as a forum for the two State departments that it
advises, their local counterparts, and other groups
concerned with the health of school-age children.
The general body of the Council includes two
representatives appointed by each of the twenty-
four local health and education departments. The
Executive Board consists of five elected members of
the general body and representatives of State and
local government health and education agencies,
medical associations, and education organizations.
