2017 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) & 2017 Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS)

High School (grades 9-12) & Middle School (grades 7-8):

YRBS & YTS Surveys

Our school is taking part in the 2017 North Dakota Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and the 2017 North Dakota Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS) sponsored by the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction and Department of Health. The YRBS survey will ask about nutrition, physical activity, injuries, tobacco, alcohol, other drug use, sexual behavior and asthma.  The content of the YTS survey includes tobacco questions related to: prevalence (cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars, and pipes); knowledge and attitudes; cessation; environmental tobacco smoke; media and advertising; minors’ access; and school curriculum.

Students in grades 7-12 will be asked to fill out a questionnaire that takes about 45 minutes to complete.  Doing this paper and pencil survey will cause no risk to students. The survey has been designed to protect student privacy. No student or class will ever be mentioned by name in a report of the results. The results of the survey will help establish trends over time that can be utilized in school planning and curriculum development.

We would like all selected students to take part in the survey, but the survey is voluntary.  No action will be taken against the school, you, or your child, if your child does not take part.  Students can skip any question they do not wish to answer.  In addition, students may stop participating in the survey at any point without penalty.

The survey will be available in the front office for you to preview if you desire. At this time, if you decide you do not want your child to take part in the survey, we will have you sign the appropriate form.

WE WILL COMPLETE THIS SURVEY ON TUESDAY, FEB.28
