HEALTHY YOUTH SURVEY FOR GRADES 9-12 - This Friday, November 5th

We will be administering the Health Youth Survey on Friday, November 5, 2021 to all students in grades 9-12.


*Our school is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during fall 2021. *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.

*Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous. Most schools will be administering the survey online this year. No privacy issues were identified in the E-survey pilot conducted in 2019. This year, schools and districts are being instructed to disable any recording, keystroke tracking, and video capture software on school-issued devices used to take the survey. They are also going to instruct students to do the same on personal devices used to take the survey before they begin. If you use any software to monitor the device your student will use to take the survey, please turn it off before they begin to ensure their honest participation.

*If you would like to opt out your student, please contact kjohnston@mvsd320.org or kbrooks@mvsd320.org.

*Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey by viewing the letter below.
