School Health Profiles is a survey for middle and high school Principals and Lead Health Teachers to assess the status of health and wellness-related policies, procedures, instruction, and environments. Schools across Washington state are randomly selected to participate in the survey every two years.

The survey is conducted by OSPI and coordinated by the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Adolescent School Health (DASH).

The 2024 School Health Profiles Survey will be completed in January through June. Results will be available in Fall 2024.

  • Physical education and physical activity
  • Practices related to bullying and sexual harassment

2022 Washington Profiles Results

Two questionnaires were mailed to 393 regular public schools and alternative schools containing any of grades 6 through 12 in Washington during spring 2022. One or both questionnaires were received from 59% of eligible sampled schools. Usable questionnaires were received from principals in 58% of schools and from lead health education teachers in 57% of schools. Because nonresponse bias analyses indicated low bias in the principal survey and the lead health education teacher survey, the results are weighted and are representative of all regular public schools and alternative schools in Washington having at least one of grades 6 through 12.
