All 8th, 10th and 12th grade students will be participating in the statewide Illinois Youth Survey during this second semester. The purpose of this survey is to gather information needed to plan important prevention and intervention programs to reduce youth drug use and associated risk behaviors.
The survey is entirely anonymous. Students will not put their names or any other identifying information on the survey booklet. Our schools will receive a report of overall results, but we and the sponsoring agencies will not know which students gave which responses. All results from the survey will be presented in a group summary format only, like many opinion polls.
This survey is voluntary, so your child will participate only if you and your child agree to do so. Please use the parent permission denial form
if you would like to exclude your child from participation. There is no penalty for you or your child for not participating in the survey. The survey will take 45 minutes. Please contact your school for additional questions.
