What district youth are saying and doing
The School Age Family Education (SAFE) program of South Washington County School District 833 Community Education will present "The State Of Our Youth, Results from the Minnesota Student Survey" on Monday, April 20, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Lake Junior High School, 3133 Pioneer Drive, Woodbury. The cost is $8 and registration is required.
School District 833 social worker Jill Kiltie and SAFE coordinator Mary Gale will present the results of this most recent survey by the Minnesota Department of Health.
The survey is given every three years to students in grades six, nine and 12 and provides statewide and school district-specific information. The results, released in 2008, reveal what teens are saying about their behaviors, choices and opinions on the issues of substance abuse, weapons/violence, safety, nutrition, academics, and connections with school, family and community.
The program will include trends of district 833 children, comparisons to other districts in the state, information about the support adults can provide children and teens that promote healthy choices and protect against dangerous risk behaviors, and more.
