The School Health Profiles monitors the status of school health education, physical education, school health policies related HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco use prevention, and nutrition, asthma management activities, and family and community involvement in school health. Georgia Department of Public Health will conduct the survey biennially at the middle and high school levels. Principals and lead health educators at sampled schools are responsible for filling out the surveys.
2014 Georgia School Health Profiles Survey
For the 2014 SHP survey, questionnaires were sent to 392 regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools containing any of grades 6 through 12 during spring 2014. Survey questionnaires were received from principals in 77% of schools and from LHEs in 72% of schools. Because the response rate was greater than 70%, the results were weighted and are considered representative of all regular public schools, charter schools, and alternative schools containing at least one of the grades 6 through 12.
