Glenbard District 87 In-Touch Task Force Student Survey.
During the 1985-1986 and 1986-1987 school years, the In-Touch Task Force of Glenbard High School District 87 developed a questionnaire to survey students on several areas of concern and to assess student willingness to participate in school-based information or intervention programs. The survey consisted of 150 multiple-choice questions and 8 open-ended questions covering the areas of: (1) personal and family characteristics; (2) student worries and concerns; (3) attitudes toward tobacco, alcohol, and drugs; (4) first experience with tobacco, alcohol, and drugs; (5) present use of tobacco, alcohol, and drugs; (6) coping with stress; and (7) interest in school-based information programs. The survey was completed by 5,657 students in four high schools. Responses to all closed-ended questions were analyzed and a random sample of 600 responses to each of the open-ended questions was selected for analysis. This report presents findings from the study in each of the seven areas covered by the survey. Tables are included which illustrate responses to each area by grade level and/or by respondent gender. Student responses to the open-ended questions are summarized. The survey instrument and instructions to students are appended as are total responses to each choice of the multiple-choice questions.
