Substance Abuse Prevention & Intervention

California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS)


The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) will take place the week of November 12th and be given electronically to all 7th, 9th and 11th graders (all students in grades 7 through 12 at Apollo High School and Monte Vista School). This very important survey helps promote better health and well-being among our youth, improves the school learning environment and combats problems such as drug abuse and violence. The results from this survey are completely anonymous and will be compiled into district- and county-level CHKS Reports. Parents receive a letter via email that will provide additional information about the CHKS survey. Please return the opt-out portion of the letter only if you do not wish for your child to participate. To preview the survey, please click below:
