Manistee Middle / High School

Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth
Our school is taking part in the Michigan Profile for Healthy Youth survey supported by the Michigan Departments of Education and Health and Human Services.  The research survey will ask about the health behaviors of 9th grade students.  The survey will ask about behavior and attitude related to nutrition, physical activity, injuries, tobacco, alcohol, and other drug use.  It will also ask about sexual behaviors that cause AIDS, other sexually transmitted diseases, and pregnancy.  The survey has been designed to protect each student’s privacy.    
Students will be asked to complete an online survey at a private computer terminal.  Participation in the survey will cause little or no risk to any student.  The only potential risk is that some students might find certain questions to be sensitive. Students will not be asked to provide their name or any other identifying information.  Also, no school or student will ever be mentioned by name in any reported results.  The results of this survey will help students in the future.  We would like all selected students to take part in the survey, but the survey is voluntary.  No action will be taken against the school, you, or the student if the student does not participate.  Students can skip any question that they do not wish to answer.  In addition, students may stop participating in the survey at any point without penalty.
The surveys are available at the school for your review.  If you have any questions please contact Kenn Kott at, or 723-2547.
