Healthy Youth Survey
In October 2018, Issaquah School District 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders took the State's Healthy Youth Survey — marking the eighth time Issaquah School District has been involved in the state-wide data collection effort.
The biennial Healthy Youth Survey is sponsored by the following state agencies: Department of Social and Health Services, Department of Health, Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Liquor and Cannabis Board.
Many Washington school districts like Issaquah voluntarily administered the anonymous survey to 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students in October. The survey included questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse, and orientation. Results are used by schools, communities, and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risk.
