PAYS data analysis continues

Wednesday, October 3, 2018 by SAMANTHA ANDERSON in School

Communities That Care (CTC) continued its in-depth look at the 2017 Pennsylvania Youth Survey (PAYS) data during the Sept. 21 meeting. This allows the group, which is made up of school district and law enforcement personnel as well as a variety of community members, to identify potential risk factors for youths. They discuss different preventive measures and methods of positively affecting the lives of the students.

The survey was taken by sixth- and eighth-grade students, as well as sophomores and seniors at the high school. It is taken every two years.
