2016-17 California Healthy Kids Survey Results
The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is the largest statewide survey of resiliency, protective factors, and risk behaviors in the nation. Across California, the CHKS has led to a better understanding of the relationship between students' health behaviors and academic performance, and is frequently cited by state policymakers and the media as a critical component of school improvement efforts to help guide the development of more effective health, prevention, and youth development programs.
The CHKS and the California School Climate Survey, are highlighted as a model program in a research document released by the US Department of Education highlighting the research behind the Obama administration’s Blueprint for Reform: The Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (pdf).
This survey was administered in the fall of 2016 and posted February 2017.
