State’s healthy youth survey to ASD students in grades 6, 8, 10, and 12 wraps Oct. 29


Oct. 29 is the final day this fall for Auburn School District students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 take the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey.

The survey. which the ASD began administering Oct. 11, 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. Schools, communities and state agencies use survey results to plan programs to support youth and reduce their risks.

Participation in the survey is voluntary, and the students’ answers are anonymous. Most schools are administering the survey online this year.

No privacy issues were identified in the E-survey pilot conducted in 2019. This year, schools and districts have been 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.
