YRBS Survey

The Youth Risk and Behavioral Survey (YRBS) is a national survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) every two years among representative samples of 9th through 12th grade students. It is jointly administered by the New Hampshire Departments of Health and Human Services and Education. Students complete a self-administered, anonymous, 99-item questionnaire with procedures to protect their privacy. The YRBS measures behaviors that fall into six categories:

 

1.Behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence

2.Sexual behaviors that contribute to unintentional pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases

3.Alcohol and other drug use

4.Tobacco

5.Unhealthy dietary behaviors

6.Inadequate physical activity

 

The results of the survey are shared with the greater community to allow collaboration on areas of concern. Procedures include exclusion of their name on survey materials (it is an anonymous survey) and may include opting out before the survey that is scheduled for December 7th.  If you want to opt your student(s) out of the survey, please use this link:  Opt Out Form.

GoGuardian Information

Please see the information below from the District’s IT Department.

Subject line: Welcome to GoGuardian Parent

The Dover School District has granted access to GoGuardian Parent, a mobile app to help keep parents/guardians aware of your children's activity on school-issued devices and provide you with additional controls during out-of-school hours. GoGuardian Parent is a companion to the classroom management and internet filtering tools that your child's school uses for devices issued to students. Through the use of this app, we hope to encourage more open and honest conversations between parents and children that will result in safer practices and responsible browsing habits.

What is GoGuardian Parent?

GoGuardian Parent was created to help provide additional educational support to administrators and teachers by allowing parents to see what sites and documents their children are browsing and providing parents with additional internet controls at home. The app gives parents a bird's eye view of the apps and websites that their kids are on most often and control over school-issued devices during out-of-school hours. With this perspective, parents can be made aware of what types of browsing behavior schools are seeing from students so they can all work together to encourage more effective internet browsing habits at home and at school.

What's the intention of the app?

By providing insight and controls over student browsing activity, our goal is to empower parents to take a more active role in their children's online learning. We aim to create a greater sense of transparency with student browsing to help bring about a greater sense of accountability on both the parent's and the student's part. We also believe that transparency and insight will increase the likelihood of productive student browsing habits on a more consistent basis.

What is included in this app:

 

Top 5 summary of student browsing (apps, extensions, documents, and websites visited)

Teacher interventions

30-day view of websites, videos, documents, apps, and extensions

Ability to block websites on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours

Ability to pause internet access on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours, either on-demand or at a scheduled time
