See where students are today, so you can plan for tomorrow
Identify high-risk behavior and take action
The best community programs are well-focused and well-funded. The KCTC Student Survey helps on both fronts. By gathering information on students’ opinions, behaviors, and influences related to alcohol, tobacco, and drug use, as well as bullying and social-emotional learning, you’ll be able to identify risk and protective factors unique to your community.
This allows for better analyses when considering community action to mitigate health risk behaviors, and gives you concrete and convincing data to use when applying for grants.
See the difference in your community year after year
When a community participates in the KCTC Student Survey annually, you gain an accurate and grounded perspective on how students in your community are changing, and how effective programs have been.
The range of ages participating in the study means that you will be able to track the impact and effectiveness on students over a six-year period. This will help shape efforts for future students as well as provide an accurate image of those leaving high school and heading off to local colleges, jobs, and opportunities.
