Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
In October 1983, 1,275 Austin Independent School District (AISD) secondary students completed a survey of their needs for social services. The survey was approved by the Board of Trustees in response to a request by the Social Policy Advisory Committee (SPAC). The purpose of the survey was to aid the SPAC in planning social services to meet the needs of youth in Austin and Travis County. Survey questions covering topics such as drugs, sex, and law abidance in addition to peer and parental support, were completed by a self-selected sample not considered representative of the entire AISD student population. The 335 items provided information on the students' outlook on life, school, and their futures. Complete results, including breakdown for high school and junior high school students, are contained in this report. (PN)
