The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is an anonymous, confidential survey of youth resiliency, protective factors, and risk behaviors. It is administered to students at grades five, seven, nine, and eleven. It enables schools and communities to collect and analyze data regarding local youth health risks and behaviors, school connectedness, protective factors, and school violence. The CHKS is part of a comprehensive data-driven decision-making process on improving school climate and the student learning environment for overall school improvements.
The supplemental module chosen is Social Emotional Health and is a strength-based assessment of youth empathy, self-efficacy, self-awareness, persistence, emotional self-regulation and behavioral self-control
