  • The survey is voluntary, anonymous, and happens every two years in the fall.

  • The survey is administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Colorado School of Public Health (CSPH).

  • The HKCS has a rigorous policy to protect the confidentiality and anonymity of student data.
