Parent Survey 2018

HJUHSD Parents and guardians: Your schools needs your feedback!

Please take a few minutes to complete the online 2018 HJUHSD Climate Survey by November 3. 

We appreciate your honest feedback regarding your experience with Hanford High School, Hanford West High High School, Sierra Pacific High School, Earl F. Johnson High School, and/or Hanford Night Continuation High School.

Our successful partnership in your student’s education depends on clear communication. The survey is anonymous. Names and IP addresses will not be collected, and your responses cannot and will not affect your student.

This annual parent survey helps our schools hear directly from families on a host of issues. This survey is also part of the Western Association of School and Colleges (WASC) school accreditation process as well as assisting HJUHSD in developing the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).

Thank you for your help! If you have any questions, please contact Bobby Peters, Director of Educational Services, at bpeters@hjuhsd.org or 5559-583-5901, extension 3105.

California Healthy Kids Survey 2018

HJUHSD students will be invited to take the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) by the California Department of Education this semester.

 The CHKS is an important tool to help promote better health and well-being students, improve the school learning environment and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. Students are not required to take the survey: Parents who do not want their child to take the survey must notify their school.

Survey Content
The survey gathers information on developmental supports provided to youth; school connectedness and barriers to learning; school safety; and health-related concerns such as physical activity and nutritional habits; alcohol, tobacco and other drug use; and risk of depression and suicide and perceived sexual orientation. The results from this survey are compiled into district and county-level CHKS Reports. To view a copy of your district’s report, go to http://chks.wested.org/reports/search (Outside Source) and type in the district name.

It is Voluntary 
Students who, with your permission, agree to participate do not have to answer any questions they do not want to answer, and may stop taking the survey at any time.

It is Anonymous 
No names are recorded or attached to the survey forms or data. The results will be made available for analysis only under strict confidentiality controls.

Administration 
The survey will be administered during the fall semester. It will take about one class period to complete (about 50 minutes) and will be administered in your child’s English class.

Potential Risks 
There are no known risks of physical harm to your child. Risks of psychological or social harm are very small. None have been reported in 14 years of survey administration. In rare instances, some discomfort might be experienced from the questions. The school’s counseling services will be available to answer any personal questions that may materialize.

For More Information 
The survey was developed by WestEd, a public, non-profit educational institution.

If you have any questions about this survey, or about your rights, please call or email Bobby Peters, HJUHSD Director of Educational Services, at 559-583-5901, ext. 3105 or bpeters @hjuhsd.k12.org.

If you do not want your child to participate, you may contact your school Testing Secretary.



CONSENTIMIENTO PARA LA ENCUESTA CALIFORNIA HEALTHY KIDS SURVEY

Le estamos pidiendo a su hijo(a) que participe de la encuesta California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) que realiza nuestra escuela y que está patrocinada por el Departamento de Educación de California.

Es una encuesta muy importante que ayudará a fomentar una mejor calidad de la salud y el bienestar de nuestros jóvenes, mejorará el ambiente de aprendizaje en la escuela y combatirá problemas como el abuso de drogas y la violencia.

Su hijo(a) no tiene obligación de participar en esta encuesta. La participación es voluntaria y requiere su autorización.

Contenido de la encuesta
La encuesta recopila información sobre la ayuda que se proporciona a los jóvenes durante su desarrollo; el vínculo con la escuela y los obstáculos en el aprendizaje; la seguridad escolar; y los temas que causan preocupación sobre la salud, tales como la actividad física y los hábitos de nutrición; el consumo de alcohol, tabaco y otras drogas y los riesgos de la depresión y el suicidio y la orientación sexual percibida. Los resultados de esta encuesta se recopilan en informes de la encuesta CHKS a nivel del distrito y del condado. Para ver una copia del informe del distrito, visite http://chks.wested.org/reports/search (una fuente externa) y ponga el nombre del distrito.

Es voluntaria
Los estudiantes que estén de acuerdo en participar, con su permiso, no tienen que responder ninguna pregunta que no quieran responder y pueden dejar de participar en cualquier momento.

Es anónima
No se registrará ni se relacionará ningún nombre a los formularios (o formas) ni a los datos de la encuesta. Los resultados estarán disponibles para su análisis sólo bajo estrictos controles de confidencialidad.

Administración 
La encuesta se llevará a cabo al final del semestre de otoño. El tiempo que se necesita para completar la encuesta es aproximadamente un período de clases (alrededor de 50 minutos), y se realizará en la clase de ingles del niño(a).

Riesgos posibles
No se conocen riesgos de daño físico para el niño(a). Los riesgos de que se produzcan daños sociales o psicológicos son muy pocos. En los 14 años en que se viene realizando la encuesta, nunca se reportó ningún caso. En muy pocas ocasiones, los participantes se pudieron haber sentido incómodos por las preguntas. Los servicios de asesoramiento de la escuela estarán disponibles para responder cualquier pregunta personal que pueda surgir.
