Previous California Healthy Kids Survey findings

The Pleasanton Unified School District would like to thank all the students who participated in the Healthy Kids Survey, sponsored by the California Department of Education, in October 2007. This very important survey, required by law, helps promote better health among our community’s youth and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence.

The survey was approved by the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, Office of the Attorney General, the Department of Health Services, and our local Board of Education. The District administered the survey during October 2007. A permission form was required for participating students. The survey gathered information on health-risk behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use; violence; sexual behavior/pregnancy; and school safety. This survey’s results along with the data from the surveys administered in prior years, will help the district to evaluate current programs and plan for the future.

All Pleasanton Unified School District students in grades 5, 7, 9, and 11 were asked to participate in the survey. Participation was voluntary. Students only had to answer the questions they wanted to answer and could stop taking it at any time. Before the survey began, the survey’s purpose, content, and procedures were explained. Students who did not take the survey were assigned to an alternate class activity. The survey was also anonymous and confidential.
