Survey looks at Cedarcrest High School students’ health, risk behavior

A questionnaire looks this week at health and risk behavior by teens in the Lower Valley.

Students at Cedarcrest High School take the Healthy Youth Survey on Wednesday, Oct. 20. It will be administered in 10th and 12th grade advisory classrooms.

In addition, a few randomly selected classrooms in grades 9, 10 and 12 will take a similar survey, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey. Mr. Pittis’ ninth grade advisory is the only freshman classroom that was randomly selected to participate in the survey; no 11th grade classrooms were randomly selected.

Both surveys ask questions about risk for injury, health outcomes, and alcohol and drug use. Schools, communities and state and local health departments use survey results to support youth and reduce their risks.

An informational flyer on the surveys was sent home with all students in participating classrooms.

Parents or students may opt out of the survey by contacting the counseling center at (425) 844-4865.
