The School Health Policies and Programs 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 most recently conducted in 2006. SHPPS also was conducted in 2000 and 1994; the next SHPPS is planned for 2012.
Total student enrollment of the middle and junior high schools included in SHPPS is obtained from the Quality Education Data (QED) database. QED’s National Education Database covers all educational institutions in the United States and Canada. See http://www.qeddata.com for more information.
