About the Healthy Schools Act School Health Profile
Under Section 602 of the Healthy Schools Act (HSA) of 2010, each DCPS and public charter school within the District of Columbia is required to complete and submit the Healthy Schools Act School Health Profile to OSSE. Only public schools and public charter schools that complete and submit HSA School Health Profiles will be eligible to receive HSA grants for the 2018-19 school year. Schools that primarily serve adults do not need to complete the HSA SHP.
Within 30 days of completion, a PDF of your HSA SHP will be emailed to the contact provided. Each school is required to make this PDF available online if the school has a website and available to parents and guardians for hard copy pick up at the main office. The HSA SHP will be posted on the OSSE website within 30 days of submission.
The information in the HSA SHP is reported annually by the OSSE to the Mayor’s Office and the City Council. Schools who do not submit their completed Profile will be out of compliance with the Healthy Schools Act, and this will be noted in OSSE’s yearly report to City Council and the Mayor.
When you log in to the online portal, the profile will appear on the left hand side of the page. Principals and the 2016-17 school year contact have access. If another staff member requires access contact (202) 719-6500 between 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. or e-mail [email protected].
The Healthy Schools Act (HSA) School Health Profile (SHP) is to be completed and submitted online by each school.

The HSA SHP is three pages, and we recommend using the printable version of the SHP [PDF] to gather information before submitting the form online. Once you start a page in the online format, you must complete the entire page to be able to save it; partially completed pages will not be saved. “Edit” allows you to enter your responses. “View” allows you to see the form as it will be submitted.
- Complete the questions on page 1. At the end of the page, click the “completed” box and then “save” to save the form.
- After clicking “save,” you will be taken back to the home screen. Click “go to page 2” to move on. Once you are on page 2, click “edit” at the top right of the screen. Repeat for page 3.
- Please note that many questions are required and you cannot save the form until all required questions on that page are completed. Be sure to check the “completed” box at the end of each page. Your Profile cannot be submitted unless all three “completed” boxes are checked.
- Note: You will know your profile has been submitted once there is a green dot under each page you saved. You will not receive a confirmation message.
Please consult with other school staff if you are not sure of an answer on the Profile.
