Saratoga Parents Urged to Take Online Surve


SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Saratoga Partnership for Prevention would like to invite all parents of 7th-12th grade students in the Saratoga Springs City School District to take a brief online survey about adolescent alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. Starting today, local parents will be able to visit a link on to provide their opinions. The process is completely anonymous and takes less than 15 minutes.

The companion survey to the Youth Prevention Needs Assessment administered earlier this fall to all Saratoga 7th - 12th graders, this questionnaire is designed to gauge the attitudes and perceptions of a random sample of parents in the Saratoga Springs City School District. It will also serve as a means to gauge the similarities and differences between parents’ perceptions of teen behavior and the behavior teens actually report. Results of both surveys will be publicized in Spring 2013.

In order to have a representative sample, 350 parents need to complete the online form. It's quick and easy, and parents' answers will be used to help the Partnership plan parenting programs, community events that send consistent messages about underage substance use, and ways to support families as their children progress through the teen years. The survey can be found by following this link:

The Saratoga Partnership for Prevention is a program of the Prevention Council. It is made up of youth, parents, and individuals representing key sectors and organizations concerned about youth in the Saratoga Springs City School District.
