WARNS 2020 User and Covid-19 Surveys
In February of 2020, we launched a survey of all 755 WARNS users in the State of Washington to collect information to help the WSU WARNS team respond to the needs of school districts and other youth services providers who are addressing truancy and chronic absenteeism in Washington state.
In March, soon after the survey launched, the state began ordering the shutdown of schools and other businesses in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. The WSU team decided a follow-up survey was needed to examine the impact of the school closures on students and the counselors who work with them.
The complete report for the 2020 WARNS User Survey is provided below. Also provided is the Executive Summary of the WARNS Covid-19 Impact Survey. A deeper analysis of the responses to the Covid-19 Impact survey will be forthcoming. However, all user comments are provided with the Executive Summary to allow the reader access to this rich source of information on the impact of the school closures on some of the state’s most at-risk students.
2018 WARNS User and Non-User Survey Results
In the spring of 2018, two web surveys were implemented to collect information on the WARNS assessment from subscribers and non-subscribers of the WARNS/PSSO system. The objectives of the surveys were to collect information to help the WSU WARNS team respond to the needs of school districts and other youth services providers who are addressing the truancy problem in Washington state.
