Caring Communities Youth Survey (CCYS)
The Caring Communities Youth Survey (CCYS) is designed to assess students’ involvement in a specific set of problem behaviors, as well as their exposure to a set of scientifically validated risk and protective factors. The risk and protective factors have been shown to influence the likelihood of academic success, school dropout, substance abuse, violence and delinquency among youth. For example, children who live in disorganized, crime-ridden neighborhoods are more likely to become involved in crime and drug use than children who live in safe neighborhoods.
The survey is administered every two years to Louisiana students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12.
More than 113,000 Louisiana students participated in the 2010 CCYS survey, and the results of the 2010 survey are now available. You can view the state report or reports for each of the parish school systems in Louisiana. (Want a brief summary of the 2010 full report? View the 2010 State Summary.)
