Washington State Healthy Youth Survey 2023
Our secondary schools are participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) this year. The HYS will be given to students in Grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 in October of 2023.
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.
We will be administering the survey electronically during the last three weeks of October using UPSD Chromebooks.
Please read the Parent and Student Notification Letter for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
