Student Health

The Kentucky Department of Education provides aggregate school health data of students. Reports include chronic health conditions, immunization certificates, and exams/screenings for preventive health, vision, hearing, and dental.

This annual survey is conducted as part of a national effort by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) to monitor students' health-risk behaviors in six priority areas. These six areas include injury and violence, alcohol and drug use, tobacco use, nutrition, physical activity, and sexual risk behaviors.

This is a system of surveys developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assess school health policies and programs in states and large urban school districts. The Profiles survey is conducted in Kentucky biennially among middle and high school principals and lead health education teachers.
