Parent Permission Requested for

´╗┐Student Wellness Survey

Thursday, September 21, 2023


Dear Boise School District Parents of Junior and Senior High School Students,


We are excited to announce that our junior and senior high schools will participate again this year in Communities for Youth’s Boise Student Wellness Survey. Thanks to our students, last year’s survey results provided our mental health professionals and school administrators with evidence about student mental health and well-being. 


What do we do with the results?

The results of the student well-being survey gave us valuable information, which identified areas of success as well as opportunities where we can focus. They also serve as an important measurement for our schools and our commitment to creating a responsive culture for learning. 


For example, last year’s survey data resulted in the District’s first mental health summit, where junior and senior high school principals were provided with their school-specific data and encouraged to develop resources and activities directly related to student well-being and school culture.


Survey Questions & Parental Permission

The success of this survey will rely on engagement and trust. This year, you will have to opt-in your junior or senior high school student to participate in this survey, rather than opt-out. Your approval is required for your student to take the survey.


Questions about the Student Wellness Survey?
Join us for one of our open-house events! We will have a virtual open house on Wednesday, October 18th at noon (Here's the link to join: We will also have an in-person open house on Wed, Oct 25th at East Jr High from 6:00 to 7:30. Please join us if you have any questions!

Providing a welcoming, responsive culture where every child can learn is a goal we all share at Boise School District. Of course, if you have any additional questions, please reach out to your school principal.


Thank you again for your involvement and commitment to your child’s education and to Boise’s schools.
