CESA-Level Youth Risk Behavior Survey Reports Available

Tuesday, January 7, 2020

Cooperative Education Service Agencies (CESA)-level reports have been generated and posted for middle school and high school Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBS) on the Department of Public Instruction YRBS web page.

CESA-level reports were created for regions that had sufficient participation, as outlined on the DPI YRBS web page under the County and Regional Results section.

Schools, CESAs, and other stakeholders can start to review their data to help them better understand what challenges students are facing, how connected students are, and how student risk and protective factors might be impacting life at school.

For instance, the data can be used as background material as stakeholders are working on professional development, continuous improvement plans, local grants, and other efforts.

New and prominent questions related to vaping, screen use at night, sexting, sexual abuse/assault, number of supportive adults, and concussions were included in this year’s survey.

The survey is part of a national effort by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor health-risk behaviors of the nation’s high school students.

Information on county, district, and school-level results are also available on the YRBS web page. The statewide summary report will be available early this year.
