BISD students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 will be participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey this fall.
The Healthy Youth Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. Specifically, BISD uses data from the HYS to help us refine our work regarding student health, well-being and safety as outlined in ourDistrict Improvement Plan.
The 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. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
