Iowa Youth Survey for Students in Grades 6, 8 and 11

Students in 6th, 8th and 11th grades will be asked to take the Iowa Youth Survey at school sometime between October 15th and November 4th.  Participation in the survey is anonymous and strictly voluntary, and no student is required to complete the questionnaire.

The 2016 Iowa Youth Survey is directed by the Iowa Department of Public Health, and the purpose of the survey is to collect information about Iowa youth so we can better understand their beliefs, values, and decisions about what makes them feel secure, strong, and safe in their communities, schools, and families. In addition, information is collected about their ideas on alcohol, tobacco, drugs, bullying and harassment, and violence prevention. The information collected will help the state planning agencies, our schools, and local community task forces put together valuable future programming.

As a parent, you can request to preview the survey and have the authority to notify us by October 14th if you do not want your child to take the survey. If we do not hear from you that you object to having your child participate, then your child will be given the survey.
