California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) for 6/7th Graders at Arete

From November 18-December 18, 2020, Arete students will be asked to be a part of our school’s California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) sponsored by the California Department of Education.

This is a very important survey that will help promote better health and well-being among our youth, improve the school learning environment and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. This information is used in our LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) where we make plans for improving our school.

There is a sample survey for you to review in the Arete office if you would like.

If your 7th grader is at Arete on November 30 and/or December 1, they will be given the survey. Please email me before November 25th if you do not want your child to complete the survey.

If you want your 6th grader to take the survey, please complete the attached permission slip and return it to Arete by November 30, 2020 and they will take it in class on November 30 or December 1.

Both 6/7th grade parents will be given an informational/permission slip during Session #3 20 Day Meetings. The 7th grade one says we can administer the survey unless you tell us not to. The 6th grade one says parents need to sign the permission slip in order for us to administer the survey.

For more information, please read the CHKS document attached. Please reach out if you have any questions. Have a great weekend.
