California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS)

About the CHKS:

The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is a powerful tool for use in Grades 4-12 that can help schools and districts accurately identify areas of student and school strengths and weaknesses, and address related needs. It provides a comprehensive, data-driven, decision-making process to guide efforts to improve school climate, learning supports, and engagement, as well as identify and increase the quality of health, prevention, and youth development programs.

At the heart of the CHKS is a broad range of key learning and health-related indicators that are used to collect student data on attitudes, behaviors, and experiences related to school and learning. School connectedness, developmental supports and opportunities, safety, violence and harassment, substance use, and physical and mental health are some of the key areas assessed by the survey.

This information is taken directly from the WestEd for the California Department of Education website at: http://chks.wested.org/

Sierra Sands Unified School District will administer the CHKS to 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th grade students on Tuesday, November 7th.
