Temecula Students to Take Survey on Drug, Alcohol, Tobacco Use

The survey will also include questions about bullying, violence, campus safety and other important issues facing Temecula youth, according to a news release from the Temecula Valley Unified School District.

Temecula Valley Unified School District students in the fifth, seventh, ninth and eleventh grades will take the California Healthy Kids Survey later this month. 

Survey results will provide TVUSD with information regarding student attitudes towards drug, alcohol and tobacco use. The survey asks questions about bullying, violence, student perception of campus safety, school and community connection, and other important issues facing our community’s youth. A component for military families will also be included.  The surveys are available for review at the following web link: www.tvusd.k12.ca.us/chks_sample_survey.  

Students in the fifth grade must have their parents’ permission to take the survey. Students in the seventh, ninth and eleventh grades will take the survey unless their parents return a permission letter requesting that they opt out. Letters for survey participation will go home in February. A student’s participation is voluntary and all responses are anonymous.

Results of this survey will be available in the spring. These results are used to improve programs and identify student health and safety needs. Results of previous surveys are available on the web link provided above.

How about a survey on respect for their elders

What does having respect for your elders have anything to do with this? A lot people I know at school have a lot of respect for old people.

I can just imagine how that question would be worded... Please choose the best answer for the following question: Do you respect your elders? __ Yes __ No __ LOL!!!

I imagine that's very true, Michael. (I hope you can forgive a couple of elders for funnin'.)

I think this is great to get the schools and kids talking about things like this. Good job TVUSD.

Please, these people we call kids now days don't believe they have elder's. They are taught and brought up to believe they are entitled to do what they want including disrespecting people who try to care for them simply because they want to. Then they expect the elders to cover the charge...LOL on that one!

Even this article suggest they don't have to respect their elder's if they are older than children in the 5th grade, stating "Students in the fifth grade must have their parents’ permission to take the survey."
