The Issaquah Schools Foundation focuses on a number of different areas supporting behavioral health in youth.
Healthy Youth Survey
The healthy youth survey is offered to district 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders every 2 years. The Foundation supports the district in partnering to help provide a summary and analysis of the data. This information provides insight into areas where more support may be needed for students in our community. The Foundation works closely with the Issaquah School District's student intervention department to provide such support.
Action Forum for Youth
The Foundation partners with Influence the Choice to offer the Action Forum for Youth. The Action Forum is a community presentation of the results of the Healthy Youth Survey and round table discussion on how we can support youth in our community. This event provides an opportunity for anyone to get the results of the survey and discuss the options for further supporting our youth. The Action Forum for Youth will take place on May 23, 2019, 7:00 am at the Issaquah Holiday Inn. A link to the Action Forum PowerPoint presentation about the Healthy Youth Survey is here.

In 2019, we are offering showings of the documentary "LIKE" at all 4 high schools. LIKE is a documentary about the impact of social media on our lives, and the effects of technology on the brain. By understanding the use of this technology in our civilization, we can learn to navigate it more safely together.
