Our school is participating in the Washington state Healthy Youth Survey on October 27, 2021, and October 28, 2021. The survey will be given to students in Grades 6 through 12.
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.
Taholah will be administering the survey online this year. No privacy issues were identified in the E-survey pilot conducted in 2019. Taholah will disable any recording, keystroke tracking, and video capture software on school-issued devices used to take the survey.
Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
