California Healthy Kids Survey (5th Grade)

Santa Clara Unified School District will participate in the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) administration this year.  This is an anonymous, confidential survey of school climate and safety, student wellness, and youth resiliency.  The CHKS is a research-based survey that will provide our district and schools with valid indicators to promote student engagement and achievement, safety, positive development, and overall well-being.  

We request permission for your child to participate in the CHKS sponsored by the California Department of Education.  The survey administration is scheduled for November 6 - November 17, 2023, across the district.  Please return the bottom portion of this letter to your child’s school by November 3, 2023. 

Student participation is voluntary and anonymous.  Your child does not have to take the survey.  No names or other identifying information except the school's name is connected to the answers.

Student participation requires that you grant your permission in writing by returning the attached form. We hope you will support your child’s participation so their opinion and knowledge can be represented in the information gleaned from the survey.  

If you have questions, please contact Myrna Zendejas at
