School Health Profiles
The School Health Profiles (Profiles) is a survey conducted in Washington
State every two years by OSPI and the Washington State Department of Health
(DOH). The survey is coordinated by the National Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC) Division of Adolescent School Health (DASH).
Profiles surveys are given to middle and high school Principal and Lead Health Teachers to assess the status of health and wellness-related policies, procedures, instruction, and environments. Schools across Washington State are randomly selected to participate in the survey.
Survey topics include:
- School health education requirements and content.
- Physical education requirements.
- School health policies on HIV and AIDS prevention, tobacco-use
prevention, violence prevention, and physical activity.
- Asthma management activities.
- Family and community involvement in school health programs.
