Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during fall 2023. The survey will be given to students in Grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 in large districts and students in Grades 6 through 12 in small school districts.
The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, sexual behaviors, abuse, risk and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
Students will complete the survey on October 19th or 20th during their social studies/history period. Students will use their computers to complete the survey digitally. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. There are no codes or information used to match a survey to a student.
Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey. If you would like to opt your child out of the survey, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 425-408-6701, and we will have your student added to our opt-out list. On the day of the survey, opted-out students will spend this time quietly doing schoolwork.
