California School Climate, Health, and Learning Surveys (CalSCHLS) are a suite of survey instruments administered by WestEd and supported by CDE. They include the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), California School Staff Survey (CSSS), and California School Parent Survey (CSPS).
California Student Tobacco Survey (CSTS) and
California Educator Tobacco Survey (CETS) are administered by the California Department of Public Health through the University of California, San Diego. This survey helps drive tobacco-use prevention efforts throughout the state and assists CDE in evaluating the effectiveness of the TUPE program.
The CSTS is administered every other year and targets students in grades eight, ten, and twelve. Its counterpart, the California Educator Tobacco Survey (CETS), is administered to school and district TUPE program staff. All TUPE-funded LEAs are required to participate in these surveys if selected, including schools not listed in the grant application.
