BULLYING. DEPRESSION. DRUG USE. SEE HOW YOUR SCHOOL COMPARES.
The Life Education Center Program is working in collaboration with sixteen school districts and four non-public schools in Kankakee and Iroquois counties to administer the 2016 Illinois Youth Survey. It will be given in February and March to 8th, 10th and 12th grade students to gather health and social indicator data. The survey is free to all Illinois schools and is available every other year.
Data is collected to guide efforts, and evaluate and compare trends as a state. Individual results are sent to each participating District. County and State Results for 2014 are available on-line at https://iys.cprd.illinois.edu. A copy of the questions on the survey is also on the site.
The Pledge for Life Partnership and Life Education Program staff analyze the county results and use the information to guide programming particularly about the abuse of prescription drugs, marijuana, and alcohol. In the near future they will be hosting a Town Hall Meeting and a Faith Summit to engage the community in prevention efforts.
