Healthy Youth Survey
The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) is a collaborative effort of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Health, the Department of Social and Health Service's Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, the Liquor and Cannabis Board, and the Department of Commerce. Results from the Healthy Youth Survey help school staff, community members, and parents understand how youth perceive their school experience.
In addition to substance and alcohol use, the survey collects information related to school commitment, opportunities for involvement in school-related activities, and the presence of a helpful adult in the school and community.
The survey is given in alternate years to students in Grades 6, 8, 10, and 12.
