NC Healthy Schools uses evidence based research and data to inform the work of the section. In addition to National data, two sources of state level data provide much needed information for planning health education programing for students. The NC Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) provides information about student health behaviors in the 6 major health risks for adolescents. The Profiles survey asks principals and health education teachers about school health policies and programs that exist in North Carolina schools.

Healthy Active Children Policy (SHLT-000) Reporting Format
Every year, school districts submit reports documenting their implementation of the Healthy Active Children Policy. Below are the two most recent Healthy Active Children Reports.

School Health Services Reports on Public Schools
The School Health Services Report on Public Schools is compiled annually at the end of each school year by school nurses, and contains data collected from each local education agency (LEA) in North Carolina. It contains information on the numbers, employers, educational background, and locations of all school nurses employed in North Carolina public schools, including the school nurse to student ratio in each LEA. It also contains data on health conditions identified in the student population, and the school health services that are provided statewide.
