2015 Healthy Kids Colorado Survey Summary



The Healthy Kids Colorado Survey (HKCS) is the standard evaluation method used in the state of Colorado to measure and assess youth behaviors, perceptions, and attitudes. Every two years, The Eagle River Youth Coalition administers the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey to middle (7th and 8th grades) and high school students (9-12th grades) in the Eagle River Valley. Survey results identify youth behaviors and current gaps in services. With this information, all coalition members utilize the Healthy Kids Colorado Survey data in their planning and adjustment of their program offerings to effectively and efficiently meet the changing needs of local youth. Finally, in one of its most important roles, the survey is a tool to identify and develop ways to impact the priority needs facing youth in the Eagle River Valley.

The need for the survey was identified in the late 1990s through the work of the ‘informal’ youth coalition and community members involved in Leadership Vail Valley. The Eagle CARES survey was implemented in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2005, and the HKCS was administered every other year from 2007-2015. Both surveys were developed utilizing the important work of Hawkins and Catalano and their Communities that Care Survey.

Thank you to our sponsors for making this survey administration possible: United Way of Eagle River Valley, Colorado Office Of Behavioral Health, Town of Vail, Town of Gypsum, Town of Eagle, Eagle County, SAMSA and CU Denver. We also applaud that all the school in our community took part, marking an unprecedented 100% participation for all 7-12th graders in Eagle County. Thank you to Eagle County School District, Stone Creek Charter, St. Clare of Assisi, Vail Christian High School and Vail Mountain School.
