Healthy Kids Survey

The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is the largest statewide survey of resiliency, protective factors, and risk behaviors in the nation. Across California, the CHKS has led to a better understanding of the relationship between students’ health behaviors and academic performance, and is frequently cited by state policymakers and the media as a critical component of school improvement efforts to help guide the development of more effective health, prevention, and youth development programs. It can be easily customized to meet local needs, interests, and standards, and provides a means to confidentially obtain data on student knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions about the topics it covers. (chks.wested.org/)

Dehesa School will begin administering this survey to 3rd-8th grade annually beginning the 
2015-16 school year. We use this data to support LCAP goals, evaluate programs, and 
maintain/improve the health and safety of our students. A reverse permission slip is 
sent home for 3rd-5th graders. This survey is confidential and optional. If you have any 
questions, please contact administration at 619-444-2161. You may click on the link
