It’s important to understand the wide variety of our student needs locally and how those needs may have been impacted over the pandemic. The Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth (MiPHY) offers an excellent opportunity to assess those current students needs and support the work of multiple district roles, initiatives, and community agencies in accurately and efficiently prioritizing student needs. For school districts specifically, this data can help them make data-driven decision in relation to MiCIP and Whole Child (WSCC Model) areas, such as: district-level preK-12 Tier 1 Health Education and Social Emotional Learning plan and the Local Wellness Policy updates required by June 30, 2022.
Do the staff, leaders, or community have questions about MiPHY? We’re here to support our state with accurate information about the MiPHY system, history of the survey, and how the data can (or cannot) be used. Check out the FAQ section of our Smore to learn more: https://www.smore.com/r1y0p

The MiPHY webpage has state resources that may be helpful, including: NEW FAQs document, Webinars that give step-by step instructions for the system, Quick Start Guide, Sample Parent Notification Form, Sample Script, and the County Reports Page.
