The Caring Communities Youth Survey (CCYS) provides a way for schools to monitor important aspects of youth attitude and health at NO COST to the school.
The broad spectrum of health and school climate indicators covered on the CCYS can reduce the number of surveys schools need to generate a comprehensive school profile.
The survey provides schools with a snapshot of areas of risk and strength on many health and school climate indicators.
The CCYS is the only survey that provides a consistent source of data for local level and broader community planning (school, parish, region).
Many schools use the CCYS to develop a school profile and strategic plan using survey data to determine what is working and what needs improvement.
State and community stakeholders can use CCYS data to collaborate with schools on reducing health or school climate concerns. Collaboration may occur through funded programs that target specific issues.
CCYS data is used to apply for or evaluate grant funding which directly and indirectly benefits students and schools.
Administering the CCYS biannually (every other year) allows school administrators and community stakeholders to track trends longitudinally.
School superintendents receive password protected; school-specific reports accessible online. Individual school administrators receive their password protected report from their superintendent.
