California Healthy Kids Survey slated for May for TTUSD
Ryan Summerlin April 24, 2014
TAHOE/TRUCKEE — In an effort to better understand the relationship between students’ health behaviors and academic performance, TTUSD will once again conduct the California Healthy Kids Survey.
Throughout May, students in fifth-, seventh-, ninth- and 11th-grade can voluntarily — and anonymously — take the survey, which is sponsored by the California Department of Education. It takes about a class period (50 minutes) to complete.
The survey gathers information on developmental support provided to youth; school connectedness and barriers to learning; behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco and other drug use; and school safety.
The California Healthy Kids Survey is the largest statewide survey of resiliency, protective factors and risk behaviors in the nation. TTUSD last conducted a survey in 2012.
