California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS)

California Healthy Kids Survey & School Climate Surveys

The Pleasanton Unified School District asks students in grades 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and all of Alternative Education to participate in the Healthy Kids Survey, sponsored by the California Department of Education. This very important survey, required by law, helps promote better health among our community’s youth and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. The survey has been approved by the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, Office of the Attorney General, the Department of Health Services, and our local Board of Education.

The California Healthy Kids Survey and School Climate Surveys are administered every other year. The 2023 Survey modules will be administered in October/November 2023.

Secondary school results can be presented for 23 indicators from the Core Survey Module and 12 indicators from the School Climate Module. Results can be examined across 11 subgroups. Statewide results come from the Biennial State Survey, a randomly selected representative sample of secondary schools in California.
