Updates on student, school health surveys

Principals whose school participated in the 2013 Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey (MIYHS) should have already received login information including passwords to the MIYHS website. If you are a principal of a participating school who did not receive a password, please contact Stephen Corral at stephen.corral@maine.gov or 287-2964. Please note passwords are required to access your school’s data.

Additionally, the Maine DOE in collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control conducts the School Health Profile survey for principals and lead health teachers every two years. Effective reporting of your school’s profile results enables you to provide a broad audience with factual information on school health policies and programs. The 2012 survey highlight sheets and the 2014 survey packet will be mailed to you in a few weeks.

Your participation and support in carrying out this survey is greatly appreciated as it is vital to the improvement of health in Maine’s schools. For further information, contact Jean Zimmerman at jean.zimmerman@maine.gov or 624-6687.
