On Tuesday, October 22, 2019 we will be administering the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) to all 9th and 11th grade students. Students whose parents opted them out during walkthrough will not be administered the survey.
The purpose of this survey is to obtain information from the students about their knowledge, attitudes and behavior about things that affect learning. It deals with such issues as truancy, safety, harassment, substance use, school connectedness, and learning supports.
Student participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information provided will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, improve student achievement, and reduce health risks that stand as barriers to learning.
- This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data. Students do not have to respond to any questions that they feel could be used to identify them. They will be instruct to simply skip any such questions.
- All questions apply to Foothill High School only.
- The results are for the use of the district. CDE and WestEd will preserve data confidentiality and any data requests should be referred to the district.
