Pennsylvania Youth Survey

During the week of October 30th, Bedford Middle School will take part in the Pennsylvania Youth Survey sponsored by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. The survey is given every two years to 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th graders.  It will ask questions about the behaviors of school students, including questions about school climate, violence, depression, bullying, and substance abuse.  For more information about the survey please visit then click on “2023.”  You can request a list of the survey questions by visiting this link: 

  Participation in this online survey is voluntary. The survey has been designed to protect each student’s privacy.  Students will not put their names on the survey.  Also, no school or student will ever be mentioned by name in the reported results.  The results of this survey will help students in the future.  We would like all students to take part in the survey, but the survey is voluntary. Students can skip any questions that they do not wish to answer.  In addition, students may stop participating in the survey at any point.  

As a parent or guardian, you have the right to prohibit your child’s participation. If you do NOT want your child to take part in the survey, please complete and return the form  your child brought home to the BMS main office no later than October 27, 2023.  


Thank you,
