COVID-19 Student Survey

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

This survey was created in an effort to collect student perception data to help school leaders in their end-of-year planning and student support programming, as well as information to aid in fall 2021 planning.

  • The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Washington State Department of Health (DOH), Health Care Authority (HCA), and the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences in the University of Washington School of Medicine (UW) will launch a new anonymous online survey for students in 6th to 12th grade.
  • The survey will help capture the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During this time, students have had to adjust to new ways of learning, socializing and living. The purpose of this survey is to help teachers, school leaders, parents, community partners and policy leaders understand how they can better help meet the needs of their youth.

  • Surveys are anonymous and voluntary
  • Administered to students in 6th to 12th grades
  • Survey will be administered online (either through the school in the building or from home for students participating in remote learning).

This survey asks questions about mental and physical health, hope, social support from peers and adults, thoughts and feelings pertaining to school during the COVID-19 pandemic, attitudes towards and use of alcohol, marijuana and other drugs, and COVID-19 precautions.

Survey results will be shared with schools before the end of the 20-21 school year.
