In the spring of every odd numbered year, NC Healthy Schools implements a statewide Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). The NC YRBS helps assess behaviors in youth that impact their health now and in the future. Topics include violence, personal safety, physical activity, nutrition , mental health, tobacco, drugs and alcohol, protective factors and sexual behavior questions.
Infographics created to provide data, information and other knowledge in a visual form to assist your efforts in implementing the WSCC model and the use of YRBS data.
In every even numbered year, the statewide School Health Profiles Survey is conducted. The Profiles survey has two parts. The Principal survey assesses policies related to health education and school climate, and the Lead Health Education Teacher survey looks at health programs and implementation as well as student skills development.
