NH Health Education Profile

The School Health Profiles (Profiles) assists state and local education and health agencies in monitoring and assessing characteristics of school health education; physical education and physical activity; practices related to bullying and sexual harassment; school health policies related to tobacco-use prevention and nutrition; school-based health services; family engagement and community involvement; and school health coordination. Data from Profiles can be used to improve school health programs.

Two questionnaires are used to collect data – one for school principals and one for lead health education teachers. The two questionnaires were administered online to 215 regular public schools containing any of grades 6 through 12 in New Hampshire during spring 2018. One or both questionnaires were received from 85% of eligible sampled schools. Usable questionnaires were received from principals in 82% of schools and from lead health education teachers in 77% of schools. Because the response rates for these surveys were greater than or equal to 70%, the results are weighted and are representative of all regular public schools in New Hampshire having at least one of grades 6 through 12. Results from the principal and lead health education teacher surveys are presented for the following types of schools in New Hampshire:

  • High schools with a low grade of 9 or higher and a high grade of 10 or higher;
  • Middle schools with a high grade of 9 or lower;
  • Junior/senior high schools with a low grade of 8 or lower and a high grade of 10 or higher; and
  • All schools.

The Profiles questionnaires were developed by the Division of Adolescent and School Health, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in collaboration with representatives of state, local, and territorial departments of health and education.
