School Health Profiles Survey
In spring 2022, states, school districts, territories, and tribes participated in data collection. Two questionnaires were used to collect data—one for school principals and one for lead health education teachers. The questionnaires were administered online to 334 regular public schools containing any of grades 6 through 12 in Minnesota. One or both questionnaires were from 84% of eligible sampled schools. Usable questionnaires were received from principals in 81% of schools and from lead health education teachers in 77% of schools.
