California Healthy Kids Survey
The California Healthy Kids Survey is administered every other year to students in grades 7, 9, and 11*. It is sponsored by the California Department of Education and gathers information on behaviors of our youth on subjects such as: physical activity, nutritional habits, alcohol, tobacco and drug use, school safety, and developmental assets. It is completely anonymous and will take place in your child's classroom.
This survey helps GUSD monitor student behaviors and attitudes regarding health and assists us in the maintenance of our health programs.
Fifth grade students must obtain written parent permission, while parents of students in grades seventh, ninth and eleventh must complete an opt out form if they do not wish for their child to participate in the survey. You may access the forms by clicking on the following links:

*Due to the elimination of federal and state funding for this survey, Glendora USD has not administered the CHKS since 2009 (except for WHS which received a grant to administer the CHKS in 2012). Grant funding in 2012 requires the administration of this survey to students in grades 7, 9 and 11.
