Wednesday, September 1, 2010, 9:46 am

The registration packet for the 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey will be sent to district superintendents by October 1.  The 2011 YRBS will be administered in late-February in those districts that wish to participate.  The biennial survey sponsored by the OPI, in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is a self-reported student survey for behaviors of unintentional injury and violence, tobacco use, alcohol and other drug use, sexual behaviors, nutrition and dietary behaviors, and physical activity.  Since 1991, Montana data has resulted in weighted data results due to the high rate of school participation (96% in 2009).   The anonymous and confidential survey is made available for high school and grades 7-8 students.  For more on the YRBS or to access School-Specific data go to www.opi.mt.gov/yrbs.
