This case reports a district’s creative use of a school-based health clinic to address high student absenteeism. The clinic becomes more controversial as the type of health interventions provided by the clinic expands to meet students’ sexual and reproductive health issues. Teacher notes describe how this case can be used to introduce students to a variety of issues related to the ISLLC standards, including ethics, school-community relations, gender, diversity and social justice issues. The notes explain how this case can be used as an in-class, take-home or exam activity. A shorter version of the case is provided at the end of this article for use in classes that have more limited time allowance.
