WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Cross-sector practitioners and individuals who work with children and youth and/or are working to improve outcomes on their behalf.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDENT SURVEY?
ACYI's overall role within The Partnership is to guide a shared vision and goals, to support continuous improvement across our Partnership and to advance policy and mobilize funding to improve outcomes for children and youth. We know that healthy communities closely monitor key outcome areas and ACYI is proud to support improvement toward these ends through the focus on data. ACYI administers the survey to youth in our community to gain a better understanding about what they are experiencing through their perspectives.
The 2016-17 Adams County Student Survey was administered to 35,586 students across Adams 12 Five Star Schools, Adams 14, Westminster Public Schools, Mapleton Public Schools, and School District 27J. The survey was administered online for all students and the administration window was open from October through December. Students in grades 3-5 participated in the survey in Adams 12, Mapleton, Westminster and 27J, and students in 6-12 participated in all five partner districts. Overall the 2016-17 ACSS yielded a response rate of 83.75%.
When used to help inform our work, this data serves as a powerful tool.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Pen and a notepad to take notes with. We will provide you with a copy of the Student Survey Report that most applies to you.
