California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS)

California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is a comprehensive youth health risk and resilience behavior data collection service available to all California districts, sponsored by the California Department of Education (CDE).  It consists of a comprehensive survey instrument that assesses all major areas of health-related behavior, as well as a full-service survey support system to help districts collect and use CHKS data to improve prevention and health programs. 
 
At Capistrano Unified School District the survey is administered to 5, 7, 9 and 11 grade students in January-February.  In addition, parents and staff are asked to complete a survey to evaluate the school site.  CUSD Staff are surveyed every other year and will be included the 2021-22 school year.
 
The window for participation in the 2021-2022 Parent Survey, Student Survey and Staff Survey was completed in January/February.  The District will receive results in the summer which will be shared with the community.  The results will assist the District and school sites in planning to meet student needs.
