2020 NE School Health Profile Results
What are the School Health Profiles?
The School Health Profiles (Profiles) is a system of surveys assessing school health policies and practices in states, large urban school districts, and territories. Profiles surveys are conducted biennially by education and health agencies among middle and high school principals and lead health education teachers. Profiles monitors the current status of:
- School health education requirements and content,
- Physical education and physical activity,
- Practices related to bullying and sexual harassment,
- School health policies related to tobacco-use prevention and nutrition,
- School-based health services,
- Family engagement and community involvement, and
- School health coordination.
Profiles data are collected from self-administered questionnaires from the principal and the lead health education teacher at each sampled school. In 2018, 43 states, 21 large urban school districts, and 2 territories obtained data representative of their jurisdiction. In these states, school districts, and territories, at least 70% of the principals or lead health education teachers in the sample completed the questionnaire and the data could then be weighted to represent the population. States, school districts, and territories that did not obtain at least a 70% response rate were not weighted; unweighted data represent only the schools in which the principals or teachers completed the questionnaire.
