Indiana Youth Survey - Spring 2024
This spring students will be participating in a statewide survey of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use (the Indiana Youth Survey). Students in grades 6 – 12 are scheduled to participate. Schools will administer the survey sometime during the window of February – April. If you would like to know the date scheduled for your child's school, please contact the school's main office. The survey is conducted by Prevention Insights, School of Public Health, Indiana University-Bloomington. The information regarding the survey (i.e., sample questionnaires, reports, etc.) can be viewed at www.INYS.indiana.edu and are linked below as well.
The purpose of the survey is to have accurate knowledge of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug usage from the youth in our community. The information will be comparable to both state and national data. The school system will get a report back that indicates usage by grade level. The outcomes of the survey assist us in planning curricula and programs to address alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use prevention.
Schools will be sending notifications to families in the coming weeks and will allow parents to request their child opt out of the survey if they prefer.
