PAYS Parent Letter (pdf)
On Tuesday, October 22nd, Williams Valley School District will take part in the 2019 Pennsylvania Youth Survey (PAYS). This brief, voluntary survey will ask questions about the behaviors of students in 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grades including questions about school climate, violence, depression, bullying, and substance abuse. The results of this survey will be used by the PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency, the PA Dept of Education, and the PA Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs to assist us and our community partners in working to prevent adolescent drug use and other problem behaviors. All 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students will participate in this anonymous survey.
Please see the attached letter for more information. If you do not want your child to participate, please submit your request to High School Principal, Christine Duey in writing. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Duey at 717-647-2167. Thank you.
