On March 6, 2013, the Bedford School District will be conducting a Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). This survey is offered to most high school students nationwide, every two years. For the past twenty years Bedford high school age students have received this survey while students at West High School, and at Bedford High School in 2009 and 2011. This survey anonymously asks youth about their knowledge, use and perception of risk of illegal and legal substances such as alcohol and illegal drugs. Students will be asked to complete the brief survey that will take no longer than forty minutes.
This survey is anonymous and will help the Bedford Community, New Hampshire and the United States of America in developing educational events and trainings for parents, youth and school staff. Bedford’s results of the YRBS will continue to be used to organize local and state-wide trainings and organize intervention strategies.
Thank you for all you do as the parents and guardians of Bedford’s youth. As always, we in the Bedford School District will work tirelessly to stay ahead of the issues our adolescents face with accurate data and scientific, evidenced-based prevention and intervention programs.
Please print, and return a hard copy of the form below by February 15, 2013, ONLY IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR STUDENT EXCLUDED FROM THE SURVEY.
