YRBS Survey to be given at Bedford High School -3/27/17

This Thursday (3/30), we will be conducting the YRBS with our students during an extended advisory (until 10:05). Sometime between tomorrow afternoon and advisory on Thursday please pick up the survey packet from your mailbox in the main office. Each envelope will contain the surveys for your kids, #2 pencils, FAQs about the survey, your script as the survey administrator and two forms that you will fill out.
Please read your script through prior to the beginning of advisory so that you are familiar with the content. Keep the FAQ handy in case any student has a question. I will send individual emails to the advisors of the students who have opted-out. If someone has opted out, they are still responsible for attending advisory and are asked to remain quiet while their peers complete the survey. 
"Only students who are able to take the survey without any type of assistance are eligible to participate. Students must be able to understand the questions (which are written at an 8th grade or lower reading level) and indicate their answers with a pencil on the paper survey. School staff are not allowed to read or explain the questions, view students’ answers or interact in any way with students while they are taking the survey." Please let me know if there are any questions about this!
Please drop off your envelope (with completed and any extra surveys) to the counseling office by the end of the day on Friday, 3/31. I do not need to pencils back.
I greatly appreciate your help in administering the surveys. Please let me know if there are any questions or concerns about any of it!
Thank you,
