School Health Profile Survey

The Maine Department of Education, in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (USCDC), conducts the School Health Profile (SHP) Survey for principals and lead health education teachers every two years.

A packet with a letter explaining the details of the survey and the surveys will be mailed on Friday, January 19, 2018 to K-8, Middle, Junior, and/or High School Principals. There are two surveys for each school to be filled out and returned to Pan Atlantic Research separately: 1) the Principal Survey and, 2) the Lead Health Education Teacher Survey. Please read a sample letter for further details.

Your participation and support in carrying out this survey is greatly appreciated as it is vital to the improvement of health related policies and practices in Maine’s schools and ultimately the health of students.
