SUBJECT

Youth Risk Behavior Survey

RATIONALE

††

†††† Attached are copies of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Youth Risk Behavior Survey with the addition of core factors and beliefs.This survey, which we have administered every other year since 2002, provides the most comprehensive data on a variety of teenage behaviors and will allow for comparison of longitudinal data relative to the Alleghany County Public Schools.In addition, this survey offers additional questions that will be beneficial in reflecting community values. ††Once again, our School Health Advisory Board (SHAB) will assist in administration of the survey with the Community Services Board providing funding for analysis of the data once again by Dr. Kerry Redican.

 

†††† I am recommending approval of this survey to be conducted in late October or early November.Once approved, I intend to provide copies to each of our schools and will be posted on the divisionís website for parent and community review.Any parent may choose to opt their child out of the survey if they so desire.††
