YouthTruth Survey

  • The Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda UFSD is taking part in the YouthTruth Survey. This national survey asks research-based questions on topics that impact student outcomes including school climate and culture, students’ academic experience, social-emotional health and wellness, and student motivation. The survey includes a student survey and a parent survey.
    Student Survey
    The survey will be administered to students in Grades 5-12 who attend Hoover Middle School, Franklin Middle School, Kenmore East High School, and Kenmore West High School during the regular school day during the survey window between Monday, Feb. 4, 2019 and Friday, Feb. 15, 2019. We anticipate that students will only need one instructional period to complete the survey. If students need additional time, they will be allowed to complete the survey and then go to their next class without penalty after they complete it.
    The survey has been designed to protect your child’s privacy. Students will never have the opportunity to put their names on the survey. Also, it will not be possible to ever mention a student or class by name in reporting the results. Some parents and/or students might find certain questions to be related to sensitive topics or matters. No action will be taken against you or your child if your child chooses not participate. Also, students can skip any question that they do not wish to answer, and may stop participating in the survey at any point without penalty. The opt-out form can be found here:
    Parent Survey
    The YouthTruth Survey includes a parent survey, which parents/guardians may take at any point during the survey window of Feb. 4 to Feb. 15. You can find a link to the parent survey here:
    The survey is 100% optional and anonymous, and asks similar questions on topics that impact student academic achievement.
