WA State Healthy Youth Survey Information

WA State Healthy Youth Survey
Posted on 09/28/2021

Central Kitsap High School is participating the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey this October. The survey will be provided to students in Grades 10 and 12 during their Advisory period at CKHS.

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.]
