Presentation Title

How to Analyze and Plan Using Data from the Georgia Student Health Survey

Presentation Abstract

The Georgia Student Health Survey (GSHS) is an anonymous, statewide survey that offers a primary source of middle and high school student data on topics related to school safety and wellbeing, including school climate, graduation, school dropouts, alcohol and drug use, bullying and harassment, suicide, nutrition, and sedentary behaviors. During the 2020-21 school year, the shorter Student Wellness Survey replaced the GSHS in response to COVID-19. This survey focuses exclusively on student mental and physical wellbeing. The Student Wellness Survey is sent to middle and high schools only. Participation in the Student Wellness Survey is optional, but participation is highly encouraged. The survey offers a channel for students to lift up their voices to teachers, administrators, and district leaders.
