COVID-19 Student Survey

Welcome. Thank you for your interest in the COVID-19 Student Survey.

The COVID-19 Student Survey was an anonymous online survey administered to students at participating Washington schools in 6th through 12th grades in March of 2021. The survey was developed to capture the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of students during the COVID-19 pandemic to help school leaders in their planning and student support programming (particularly for Fall 2021).

The COVID-19 Student Survey was funded and supported by the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) and implemented by a team at the University of Washington (UW), with further partnership around content, design, and distribution from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and the Washington State Department of Health (DOH).

Statewide Summary Reports

The aggregate statewide summary of results from participating schools/students is available in a statewide middle school report and a statewide high school report below. Please click the link associated with the desired report, and please be sure to review the introductory material in each report.

Topic Summaries

Topic summaries have been prepared across several important domains of student functioning and are intended to provide an insight into how different demographic groups were affected during the pandemic. These summaries are available for middle school and high school students separately. These reports include worries related to COVID-19, substance use and mental health, and school experiences.
