School Health Profiles

 CONTACT

The School Health Profiles (Profiles) is a system of surveys assessing school health policies and programs. The Profiles surveys are conducted biennially by Coordinated School Health in the South Dakota Department of Education. Profiles data are collected from self-administered questionnaires from the principal and the lead health education teacher at randomly selected secondary schools. At least 70% of the principals and lead health education teachers in the sample must have completed the survey in order to obtain weighted data. Weighted data represent the state, whereas unweighted data represent only the schools that completed the questionnaire.

Profiles monitors the current status of:
• School health education requirements and content
• Physical education requirements
• School health policies related to HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco-use prevention, and nutrition
• Asthma management activities
• Family and community involvement in school health programs


State and local education and health officials use Profiles data to:
• Compare school health policies and programs across states and across local school districts,
• Advocate for required health education
• Identify health education topics and skills that are taught
• Identify family and community involvement in school health programs
• Identify topics for professional development
• Improve school health programs and policies
• Determine how well schools address the health needs of their students
