Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The School Health Policies and Programs Study (SHPPS) is a national survey periodically conducted to assess school health policies and programs at the state, district, school, and classroom levels. SHPPS 2006 was designed to answer the following questions: (1) What are the characteristics of each school health program component at the state, district, school, and classroom (where applicable) levels and across elementary, middle, and high schools?; (2) Are there persons responsible for coordinating and delivering each school health program component and what are their qualifications and educational backgrounds?; (3) What collaboration occurs among staff from each school health program component and with staff from outside agencies and organizations?; and (4) How have key policies and practices changed over time? This brief presents an overview of the results, broken down into the following areas of interest: (1) Health Education; (2) Physical Education; (3) Health Services; (4) Mental Health and Social Services; (5) Nutrition Services; and (6) Faculty and Staff Health Promotion. Data collection methods for SHPPS are also described. (Contains 1 footnote, 4 tables, and 1 figure.)
