Promise Neighborhood Wellbeing Project

Dear Parent,

Your child is invited to participate in the Promise Neighborhood Wellbeing Project. The project is sponsored by the Bethel School District and Oregon Research Institute (ORI), and is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The purpose of the project is to pilot test student surveys that neighborhoods can use to monitor the success of programs to improve youth wellbeing. The project is part of a broader effort of the Promise Neighborhood Research Consortium (PNRC) to find ways to help neighborhoods improve young people’s chances of success.

Bethel School District is helping to pilot the child and adolescent surveys with students in grades 3 through 8. Participating students will be randomly assigned to one of the two survey versions. There are two versions of each survey so that we might collect information around several different areas yet keep the surveys short so they do not require much time to complete. Each version of the child survey is about 30 questions and each version of the adolescent survey is about 40 questions. It should take between 5 and 20 minutes to complete the survey, depending on the age of the student.
