California Healthy Kids Survey
K-8, Middle and High Schools

Principal Bulletin Action Required - May 31, 2019

It is time to administer the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) in our 7th, 9th and 11th grade classrooms. This survey is integral in providing us with the data needed to provide quality programs to students that improve school climate and students’ social/emotional well-being while addressing issues such as school safety, alcohol, tobacco, other drug usage and violence. The survey is voluntary and anonymous. No names will be recorded or attached to the survey forms or data. The California Healthy Kids Survey can be administered during one class period.

According to the California Department of Education (CDE) standards, a district must collect completed answer sheets from a minimum of 70% of students at each surveyed grade level to produce representative data. The lower the percentage of participating students, the less valid and useful the results become. The CHKS will be administered to all 7th, 9th and 11th grade SCUSD students. Student Support Services will provide all of the necessary information to each school site. If you have any questions, please contact Miamah Reed at (916) 643-7934 or email at

The California Healthy Kids Survey will be administered during the 2018-2019 school year beginning April 1, 2019 and will close on Friday, May 31, 2019 (with no exceptions).

Your support is critical for achieving the optimum participation rate.  Thank you in advance for your time and flexibility.

*Please note: Students who return their withdrawal forms (passive permission slips) to their teachers with their parent/guardian signature will not take the survey.

Thank you!
