Healthy Youth Survery

Our school will participate in the Healthy Youth Survey this Fall.

The survey asks questions about risks for injury, health outcomes, and alcohol and drug use. Schools, and state
and local agencies use survey results to support our youth and reduce their risks. The Healthy Youth Survey is
voluntary and anonymous and provides important information to guide policy and programs that serve our youth.
