Culture and Climate Survey
In order for us to continue to improve our school district and school, it is important for us to understand your thoughts about the job we are doing in providing a quality education for your children. Your feedback is important and we want to know what you think are our strengths and opportunities for growth.
The information that we receive will be reported back to your child’s school building. This feedback gives us valuable information to support our school building’s School Improvement Plan and all of our students. We value your input as we strive to continue to improve our schools. Thank you for your feedback.
Washington State Healthy Youth Survey
The Yakima School District is participating in the Washington State Healthy Youth Survey.
The Healthy Youth Survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, gender identity and sexual orientation (not for grades 6 or 7), sexual behaviors (not for grades 6 or 7), abuse, risk, and protective factors, and access to school-based services. Survey results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
Most schools will be administering the survey online this year. No privacy issues were identified in the E-survey pilot conducted in 2019. This year, schools and districts are being instructed to disable any recording, keystroke tracking, and video capture software on school-issued devices used to take the survey. They are also going to instruct students to do the same on personal devices used to take the survey before they begin. If you use any software to monitor the device your student will use to take the survey, please turn it off before they begin to ensure their honest participation.
