Agenda Item Summary: This YRBS administration represents a longstanding collaborative effort across local organizations/agencies to garner important youth behavior data dating back to 2006. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic closures occurring shortly after the 2019 survey was administered, this attached report encompasses both 2019 and 2023 administrations and provides insights into student behaviors both pre- and post-pandemic within ACPS. Trend data across five administrations are presented for this survey.
Background: A wide range of academic, government, volunteer, and non-governmental organizations collaborated on administering the 2019 and 2023 YRBS, analyzing survey data, and drafting the attached report. The findings from the attached report will be shared with City officials, partners, community organizations and members. The collaborative efforts in administering the survey and disseminating results reflect a longstanding commitment to develop coordinated responsive strategies for supporting youth and families in and out of school.
Recommendation: The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the attached YRBS Report for possible planning, procedural, programmatic, and/or budgetary changes.
