The Miller Creek School District believes diversity is an asset, values every student, and is committed to building communities where students thrive. In this effort we want to hear about the experiences of your family. Survey responses are confidential and your personally identifiable information will be viewed only by members of the district leadership team. Aggregate data will be shared with site principals and parent leadership from site Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) teams to plan future work that supports the needs of the community. Thank you for your willingness to share your experience with us.

CHKS

Seventh graders attending school in-person will be taking the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), sponsored by the California Department of Education, between May 24th and May 28th. This important survey gathers information related to school connectedness and barriers to learning, as well as behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco and other drug use; and risk of depression and perceived sexual orientation. Since the data from the survey results will further help us plan student support services for next year, we encourage all 7th graders to participate. If parents do not want their child to complete the survey, they must notify the school by completing the withdrawal form found here and returning it to the front office.  You may examine the questionnaire on the district website or by clicking here.

---------

Estudiantes de séptimo grado tomarán la Encuesta de Niños Saludables de California (CHKS), patrocinada por el Departamento de Educación de California, entre el 24 de Mayo y el 28 de Mayo. La encuesta muy importante recopila información relacionada con la conexión escolar y las barreras al aprendizaje, así como comportamientos como la actividad física y los hábitos nutricionales; consumo de alcohol, tabaco y otras drogas; y riesgo de depresión y orientación sexual percibida. Dado que los datos de los resultados de la encuesta nos ayudarán aún más a planificar los servicios de apoyo estudiantil para el próximo año, animamos a todos los estudiantes de séptimo grado a participar. Si los padres no quieren que su hijo complete la encuesta, deben notificar a la escuela completando el formulario de retiro que se encuentra aquí y devolverlo a la oficina de recepción. Puede examinar el cuestionario en el sitio web del distrito o haciendo clic aquí.
