Hanford High School is  pleased to announce that Richland School District will be paying for and giving the PSAT to all 9th, 10th, and 11th graders this year on October 10th.  This test has been given in other districts to great success and is something that RSD teachers, administrators, parents, and students have been asking for. 

Some of the benefits of the test are:

  • Students can see their own growth from year-to-year
  • Increased access to AP classes
  • Connects students to scholarship
  • Results in higher scores on SAT
  • Provides focused practice on “gap” areas
  • Provides instructional planning for teacher to improve college and career readiness
  • Provides students an opportunity to see where they are, how to improve, and provides targeted practices.

We will habe about 1700 student taking the PSAT on the morning of October 10th... More information is to come!

Healthy Youth Survey

2018 Healthy Youth Survey coming in October

Our school will participate in the 2018 Healthy Youth Survey during the week of October 8-19. Students in grades 10  and 12 all across Washington state take the survey every other year.

This survey provides important information that can be used to guide policy and programs for adolescents in Washington. The Healthy Youth Survey measures health behaviors and related risk and protective factors and includes questions on topics such as violence, alcohol, tobacco and other drug use that can result in injury and/or impede positive development among youth. The survey also include questions about sexual behavior, orientation, identity, and abuse.

While student participation is encouraged, it is voluntary. The survey procedure is designed to protect students’ confidentiality (no names, addresses, etc. are collected). A copy of the survey is available for your review in the school office, and additional information is available here

The survey will be administered during one class period during the week of October 8–19, 2018. Letters, as the attached sample, will be sent out to all parents of students who are in grade levels that will be participating in the survey. If parents do not want their child to participate in the survey, they will need to complete the bottom section of their letter and return it to the school office by October 1, 2018. These students’ name will be added to the opt out list.

The Healthy Youth Survey is a collaborative effort of several state agencies: the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the Department of Health (DOH), the Department of Social and Health Service’s Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery (DBHR), and the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Control Board (LCB). The survey is conducted under a state contract with Looking Glass Analytics, Inc.

Thank you for your help in this important research.
