Menomonee Falls School District will survey students about health behaviors as part of the Wisconsin On-Line Youth Risk Behavior Survey sponsored by the Department of Public Instruction.
The survey will ask 6-12 grade students about behaviors that result in unintentional injuries, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, dietary behavior and physical activity, according to a letter to parents.
Additionally, the survey will also ask 8th-12th graders about sexual behaviors that may result in HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases, and unwanted pregnancies.
Students will be asked to fill out a computer-based questionnaire that should take 25 minutes during regular class time. The survey is voluntary. Students can skip any question that they do not wish to answer.
Parents can opt out their children from taking the survey by filling out the form below the letter and return it to the school district no later than March 1st.
Attached are the copies of the survey.
