IL Youth Survey

During the spring semester of the 2017-2018 school year, schools within the city of Chicago and throughout the state will have the opportunity to conduct the Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) with students in 8th, 10th or 12th grade. This survey will be taken at JCHS on May 3, 2018.


The purpose of the IYS is to better understand youth attitudes and behaviors that can impact student problems and academic success. It will ask about topics including nutrition, physical activity, bullying, tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use. Students will be asked to complete a survey (with no names or identification numbers) that will be confidentially administered during one class period. The survey is completely voluntary and privacy will be strictly protected.


The Illinois Youth Survey will provide your school with a local report of the combined student results which will help to determine which programs may be needed to keep students safe and healthy.


If you wish for your child to be excluded from the survey please fill out the required sheet that is attached to allow your student to opt out of the survey. The opt out form needs to be delivered to the school before the survey is taken on May 3, 2018. Illinois Youth Survey Parent Permission Denial Form
