NORTHBOROUGH /SOUTHBOROUGH – Parents and guardians of children who are in kindergarten through 12th grade are sought to participate in a survey.
The survey was developed by Encompass, the local substance use prevention coalition that serves Northborough and Southborough. The purpose of the survey is the gauge what resources would be most helpful to parents and guardians to support children in making healthy decisions.
The survey will collect information to complement data from students that is collected in the biannual MetroWest Adolescent Health Survey that is administered to students in sixth through 12th grade.
Encompass will then use the data to determine priorities, raise awareness and support programs and policies that address substance use.
The survey, which closes March 20, is anonymous and will take about seven minutes to complete. Every question is optional. The group encourages one or more parent or guardian from the household to complete it.
