  • 2018 Washington State Healthy Youth Survey (HYS)

    Our district is participating in the 2018 Washington State Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 8-19.

    The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

    The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

    Student participation is completely voluntary and anonymous.

    Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
