Surveys Rally Communities to Support and Protect Kids


The motivation behind the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) and its partner, the California School Climate Survey, is to give schools a tool to turn troubling statistics into projects and programs that serve students’ emotional, social, health, and safety needs and improve school climate.

CHKS is a youth needs assessment and school climate data collection service created by WestEd for the California Department of Education. It’s available to education agencies in California and beyond to address students’ vulnerabilities to behaviors and environments that jeopardize their academic performance, health, safety, and positive development.

The CHKS is nationally recognized as a leading tool for the assessment of youth resilience and the developmental supports and strengths that have been linked to positive education, social, emotional, and health outcomes.
