You can view a copy of the survey
A copy of the survey is available in the downloads page. A copy of the survey will also be available in the school office for parents and staff. Districts determine whether schools use the sensitive questions.
Students information is protected
Procedures are in place to ensure your child’s responses to the survey are anonymous and confidential. The survey is completed online. There are no questions that ask identifying information such as names or student identification numbers.
Parents or Students Can Opt Out
Ohio law requires parents be informed of school surveys. Parents will be sent a letter by their child's school notifying them of the survey and their option to opt out each child. This OHYES! process meets the legal requirements and is commonly known as "passive consent," because it minimizes administrative burden on the schools, maintains student confidentiality and increases response rates. Parents can choose to have their student not participate. Click here to download the Opt Out Form. Please complete a form for each individual student. Schools will be sending notifications to parents with specific instructions on when and where to submit Opt Out Forms.
You are the expert... And you can make the difference
Your participation is essential! With OHYES!, you are the expert. Help us learn about your school’s climate and the health and academic issues that impact your quality of education and daily life.
Health-related behaviors that impact academic success include substance use, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, depression, violence, and safety. These concerns can also distract from school work.
The OHYES! may help identify areas of need for helping students become more successful. Results from the survey can help your student leadership advocate for creating safer and more welcoming schools.
Participating in OHYES! is a great way for you to make a positive difference in your school. Some schools may even offer a community service hour.
