Welcome to AskHYS.net!

The Healthy Youth Survey (HYS) is a collaborative effort of the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the Department of Health, the Health Care Authority - Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, and Liquor and Cannabis Board.

The Healthy Youth Survey provides important survey results about the health of adolescents in Washington. County prevention coordinators, community mobilization coalitions, community public health and safety networks, and others use this information to guide policy and programs that serve youth.

New Information

Healthy Youth Survey Scheduled for
Fall 2021

The Healthy Youth Survey will be administered in the fall of 2021. Additional details about the survey and modes of administration (ex: paper, electronic in the classroom, or other settings) will be announced in the next few months. The October 2020 HYS was postponed because the survey was only approved to be administered in a school setting and the majority of schools were delivering virtual or hybrid instruction due to COVID in fall 2020. Alternative administration options are being explored for future surveys to avoid administrative disruptions in the future. Updates and past results of the survey can be found on the www.AskHYS.net website. Additional resources for schools can be found on OSPI’s HYS website.
