2019 Prevention Needs Assessment

Chesterfield County Public
School Parents:

Please be advised that SAFE will be conducting our bi-annual needs assessment among 8th, 10th, and 12th-grade students this fall. The purpose of this assessment is to better understand the behavioral trends and attitudes of our youth, specifically concerning substance abuse and community connections. Participation is voluntary and confidential.

If you do not wish for your child to participate, please fill out the Parent-letter-2019.pdf, and return it to your student’s school by October 18th.

If you would like to look at the survey, you can do so here.
