Substance abuse related survey of students in grades 10 and 12

All 10th and 12th graders at the South Sioux City High School will be participating in the 2021 Nebraska Risk and Protective Factor Student Survey on October 28th. This survey is endorsed by the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS). The survey is a substance abuse related survey of students in grades 8, 10, and 12 which is conducted once every two years.

Students will take the survey during a regular class period. Completing this survey poses no risk to your child. Survey procedures have been designed to protect your child's privacy. This survey does not ask for students’ names and no student will be mentioned by name in a report of the results.

The survey is made up of multiple-choice questions. Topics covered include substance abuse, delinquent behavior, bullying, and risk and protective measures that predispose youth toward or protect them against problem behaviors (including substance abuse, delinquency, teen pregnancy, school dropout, and violence). To view the entire questionnaire and additional information about the project, please contact South Sioux City High School.

Student participation is encouraged and appreciated. The data collected are extremely useful in the development of programs related to improving the health of our youth. However, participation is voluntary and there are no consequences if a student does not participate. If you do not wish for your child to participate in this voluntary survey, please contact DeDe Frisch at South Sioux City High School School by October 25, 2021.
