Healthy Schools, Healthy Children
The School Health Profiles is a biannual set of surveys supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Adolescent and School Health’s (DASH). The Vermont Agency of Education collected data from 2002 to 2012. The Vermont Health Department began collecting data in 2014. Data are collected from middle and high school principals and lead health education teachers to assess school health policies, programs, and practices.
The School Health Profiles monitors school health education requirements and content, physical education and activity, school health policies related to HIV infection/AIDS, tobacco use prevention, nutrition, asthma management activities, family and community involvement in school health programs, and school health coordination.
