California Healthy Kids Survey

During the month of March, students, staff and parents are asked to take the California Healthy Kids Survey. Data from this survey is essential and utilized regularly to inform improvement initiatives on this campus. Over the past 4 – 6 years, school culture and mental health and wellness have been some of the biggest areas we have focused on improving, so we hope you will take the time to take the survey so we can assess and continue to grow.

California healthy Kids Survey Administered Friday, 3/11/2022

Dear Parent or Guardian:

Your 7th grade child is being asked to be a part of our school’s California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), sponsored by the California Department of Education (CDE). This is a very important survey that will help promote better health and well-being among our youth, improve the school learning environment, and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. Your child does not have to take the survey. Participation is voluntary and anonymous. No names are recorded or attached to the survey forms or data. If you wish to opt your student out of the survey, please email Mr. McDade at jmcdade@sandi.net.


Survey Content.

The survey gathers information on developmental supports provided to youth; school connectedness and barriers to learning, as well as behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; and school safety. You may examine the questionnaire in the school office or at https://sandiegounified.org/departments/counseling_and_guidance/cal-schls .

The results will be made available for analysis only under strict confidentiality controls. and will go public next year for viewing purposes and school improvement initiatives.

California Schools Parent Survey – Closes March 25th


CalSCHOOLS is one of the most essential pieces of data we use to assess our progress as a school in terms of school culture, safety, school connectedness, promotion of parental involvement, etc. Students take the California Healthy Kids Survey and parents take the California School Parent Survey. Traditionally, we have an extremely low participation rate from parents and we’d like to change that this year. We'd like to ask you to complete this online survey to learn more about your opinions of Correia Middle School. This Link: CA Schools Parent Survey Info explains the survey and, at the bottom of the page, provides your parent-survey URL and access instructions. Students have a different link and will be taking the survey in class next week. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.
