The California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is an anonymous, confidential survey of school climate and safety, student wellness, and youth resiliency. It is administered to students at grades five, seven, nine, and eleven. It enables schools and communities to collect and analyze data regarding local youth health risks and behaviors, school connectedness, school climate, protective factors, and school violence. The CHKS is part of a comprehensive data-driven decision-making process on improving school climate and student learning environment for overall school improvements.

MUSD will be administering the CalSchls (CHKS) survey for all current 5th, 7th, 9th, & 11th graders this year. The district window for administering the survey will be October 28th to December 6th, 2019.

Here are some student survey samples for parents to view. These survey samples can also be found on musd.org under Parents & Students->CA Healthy Kids Survey.

New for Families: Starting Smarter Websites~ CDE, in collaboration with the SBAC and ETS, launched two new websites to help empower parents/guardians and families to become partners in their children’s academic success:

These family-focused websites provide resources to facilitate parents’/guardians’ understanding of the scores presented on their child’s Student Score Reports (SSRs). Using these websites, families can become involved in their child’s educational progress and:

  • Learn more about the performance areas in each subject and grade.
  • See sample test questions.
  • Prepare for parent–teacher conferences with a useful, downloadable guide.
  • Access high-quality resources to support learning at home.

Thank you to the Kiwani's Club!

Thanks to our friends at our local Kiwani's Club, Spangler now has a new "Buddy Bench" for Spartans to sit on with old friends and make new friends on. We can't wait to break it in when school starts!
