Illinois Youth Survey (IYS)

  • Illinois Youth SurveyThe Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) is conducted in the spring of even years. All 8th-grade students are invited to complete the IYS. It asks students questions about mental health needs, engagement in at-risk behaviors, and other questions that help our schools adjust their prevention and support structures.

    The Illinois Youth Survey is voluntary, and every family will be notified about the IYS via email. This notice includes an opt-out option that any family may decide to use. The Illinois Youth Survey flier provides an overview of the IYS and the Parent FAQs page answers questions commonly asked about the IYS.

    If you have questions about your school’s administration or use of the IYS, don't hesitate to get in touch with your building principal.
