LHS/LMS Pride Student Survey
Posted Wednesday, November 18, 2015
Two years ago, we started a task force comprised of staff, parents, students, clergy, law enforcement and community members to examine the topic of substance abuse in our community. Although much data exists on a regional and national level, the task force became keenly aware of the lack of data specific to the Loveland community. In order to determine the possible next steps, the group determined that more information was needed concerning drug and alcohol use in our community.
To gather this baseline information we chose to administer the Pride Survey, which has been used by schools in more than 8,000 school systems across the nation over the past two decades. At this time, it is our desire to repeat this survey at Loveland High School (LHS) and Loveland Middle School (LMS). We want to compare results to the baseline information to see if any changes have occurred over the six year period. This is an anonymous survey and students are not required to participate. It is voluntary on the part of each student. The survey information will assist us in assessing our success or failure to convince students of the health and safety value of not using alcohol and drugs.
If you prefer that your child not participate, please inform the office in writing on November 23, 2015, by 2:30 pm. The survey will be administered on November 24, 2015.
A copy of the survey is available in the principal’s office if you would like to review its content. A summary of the information gathered will be shared with parents when results are obtained.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to help students understand that alcohol and drug use can be harmful to their health and safety.
Dedicated to the future of our students,
