California Healthy Kids SurveyTop of Page
Promoting academic achievement among all students requires safe and drug-free schools and healthy, resilient youth. The California Department of Education uses the California Healthy Kids Survey
(CHKS), a comprehensive youth health and risk behavior data collection system to support school districts in measuring the five most important areas for guiding school and student improvement:
- student connectedness, learning engagement/motivation, and attendance;
- school climate, culture, and conditions;
- school safety, including violence perpetration and victimization/bullying;
- physical and mental well-being and social-emotional learning; and
- student supports, including resilience-promoting developmental factors (caring relationships, high expectations, and meaningful participation).
