Durango High School is fortunate to have been selected to administer the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) on Wednesday, November 3rd. This survey, which will be given to all DHS students, will provide schools, local youth-serving organizations and state public health officials important and current information about the issues confronting our students as they grow into young adults. Data generated from this survey will be used to develop more effective programs that aim to address student needs, help youth-serving organizations identify and apply for grants, and to help district and school leaders provide safer and healthier learning environments for all students.
Using the hyperlink above, students and parents can learn more about the survey, how Colorado communities benefit from HKCS data, how student confidentiality is assured, what topics are covered, and more. Parents may view additional information and access an Opt-out letter by visiting this LINK.
Please note that Opt-out letters must be returned to the Post-Secondary Center by November 1 @ 3:30 to ensure the school has an opportunity to plan alternative activities for non-participating students, these can be emailed to email@example.com.
