School Health Profiles

Wisconsin School Health Profiles

The School Health Profiles (Profiles) assists state and local education and health agencies in monitoring and assessing characteristics of school health education; physical education and physical activity; school health policies related to HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco-use prevention, bullying and sexual harassment, and nutrition; health services; school health coordination; and family and community involvement in school health programs. Data from Profiles can be used to improve school health programs.

2016 School Health Profiles

In 2016, two questionnaires were used to collect data—one for school principals and one for lead health education teachers. The two questionnaires were sent online to 422 regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools containing any of grades 6 through 12 in Wisconsin during spring of 2016. Usable questionnaires were received from 71% of principals and from 73% of lead health teachers. Because the response rates for these surveys were greater than or equal to 70%, the results are weighted and are representative of all regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools in Wisconsin having at least one of grades 6 through 12.

The Profiles questionnaires were developed by the Division of Adolescent and School Health, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in collaboration with representatives of state, local, and territorial departments of health and education.

2014 School Health Profiles

In 2014, two questionnaires were used to collect data – one for school principals and one for lead health education teachers. The two questionnaires were mailed to 420 regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools containing any of grades 6 through 12 in Wisconsin during spring of 2014. One or both questionnaires were received from 80% of eligible sampled schools. Usable questionnaires were received from principals in 73% of schools and from lead health education teachers in 74% of schools. Because the response rates for these surveys were greater than or equal to 70%, the results are weighted and are representative of all regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools in Wisconsin having at least one of grades 6 through 12.
