School Health Policies and Practices Study (SHPPS)
The School Health Policies and Practices Study* (SHPPS) is a national survey periodically conducted to assess school health policies and practices at the state, district, school, and classroom levels. The next SHPPS is planned for 2012.
SHPPS was most recently conducted in 2006 to answer the following questions:
- What are the characteristics of each component of school health at the state, district, school, and classroom levels and across elementary, middle, and high schools?
- Are there persons responsible for coordinating and delivering each school health program component, and what are their qualifications and educational backgrounds?
- What collaboration occurs among staff from each school health program component and with staff from outside agencies and organizations?
- How have key policies and practices changed over time?
*Formerly known as the School Health Policies and Programs Study.
