Glimpse into the lives of young people in your community

Since 1995, the KCTC Student Survey has asked 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders important questions about their school, community, family, and peers. Free and anonymous, the survey provides insights on the behaviors and opinions of the young people living in your area.

What does the KCTC Student Survey cover?

The focus of the student survey is on health risk behaviors, social-emotional development, and identifying predictors of problematic and positive behavior.

How the survey benefits communities

Overall, the goal is to identify the factors that increase the risk of a problem developing for students, and then find ways to reduce the risk. With the information gathered in the survey, districts and communities get an accurate assessment of their students’ needs.
