California Healthy Kids Survey

Introduction

Every two years, school districts in California are encouraged to participate in the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS).  The CHKS is a comprehensive youth health risk and resilience data collection service for local education agencies (School districts) sponsored by the California Department of Education. The CHKS grew out of the California Department of Education’s commitment to promoting the academic success, well–being, and positive development of all youth.

The California Healthy Kids Survey is given to 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th grade students and contains questions that are considered most valuable for a comprehensive, general assessment of health risks—particularly in regard to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug (ATOD) use school violence—resilience–promoting protective factors in the school and community, bullying and physical health.

Data from the California Healthy Kids Survey provides valuable information to guide efforts to reduce student health risk behaviors and build schools that are drug–free, safe, and supportive havens for healthy, positive youth development and achievement.

Please see the attachments of questions that will be asked at each specific grade level.   A copy can also be found at your child’s school.

If you do not want your child to participate in the survey, please make sure to let your child’s school know by completing a passive permission slip for grade 7, 9, and 11.  5th grade parents, you already agreed or disagreed earlier in the year but may change if you would like by completing the form and returning to your child’s teacher

This year, we will be giving the survey during the window of January 28 – February 7, 2014.
