The School Health Profiles survey has been conducted every even-numbered year since 1994 by the Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) in collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). School buildings with any of the grades six through 12 in which grade six is not the highest grade in the building are randomly selected to participate. Two different questionnaires are distributed. The principal survey addresses school health policies and programs while the teacher survey focuses on health curriculum and instruction. Both surveys were developed by the CDC.
In 2012, 391 secondary schools were randomly selected to participate from which 303 principals (77 percent) and 306 lead health education teachers (78 percent) completed questionnaires.
