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.


SHPPS was designed to answer the following questions:

  • What are the characteristics of each component of school health at the state, district, school, and classroom levels?
  • Are there persons responsible for coordinating 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?

Comprehensive results and fact sheets from SHPPS 2014 are available on the SHPPS Results page.

*Formerly known as the School Health Policies and Programs Study.
