In January of 2022, the California-based national nonprofit YouthTruth administered surveys across 146 schools across Sonoma County school districts. The effort resulted in hearing from over 60,000 student, parent and guardian, and school staff community members on topics like, academic challenge, school culture, emotional and mental health.
Key themes emerged from the findings that speak to student, parent and guardian, and school staff members’ experiences of relationships, belonging, emotional and mental health, distance learning, housing needs, and the impacts of local environmental disasters, and the coronavirus pandemic.
