Ohio School Health Profiles

What is the School Health Profiles Survey? The School Health Profiles Survey (Profiles) is a system of surveys created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that are used to assess school health policies and practices in states, large urban school districts, territories, and tribal governments. Profiles surveys are conducted every two years by education and health agencies among middle and high school principals and lead health education teachers.

Profiles monitor the status of:

• School health education requirements and content

• Physical education and physical activity

• School health policies related to HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco-use prevention, and nutrition

• Asthma management activities

• Family and community involvement in school health programs

• School health coordination

Results of the Profiles are disseminated in a variety of means, including the following reports:
