In partnership with Communities For Youth, the Department of Education is working with school districts to help administer The Idaho Youth Well-Being Assessment. The Idaho Youth Well-Being Assessment provides schools relevant, timely, actionable information for school leaders to make confident, data-driven decisions to support our students. Assessing student well-being helps schools measure success over time. Student well-being also contributes to academic outcomes such as attendance, grades, & graduation.

  • Communicating with the Idaho Department of Education that you would like to participate

  • Scheduling one class period for students who have parental permission
