YouthTruth: Leading through Listening

Student and Communicty Voices in Bend-La Pine Schools


In January of 2024, the national nonprofit YouthTruth administered surveys in all 33 schools in Bend-La Pine Schools. The effort resulted in hearing from thousands of students, parents, guardians, and school staff community members on topics like, academic challenge, school culture, emotional and mental health.

Key themes include school engagement, academic challenge, culture, relationships, belonging, college and career readiness, emotional and mental health, and school safety.
