WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT
The SALT Survey is administered annually to parents, students, and teachers. Some of the survey responses are used to calculate the learning-support indicators for each school.
The tables are ranked by the responses in the first column; the school at the top of the list has the lowest percentage of students who reported that “they drank alcohol at least once” within the 30 days preceding the administration of the survey.
WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR
As RIDE and the R.I. Department of Health have noted in their joint publication “Youth Health Risk Behaviors”:
Through its program Healthy Schools!, Healthy Kids!, RIDE works with state, school, and community partners to help create safe, healthy, and nurturing schools so that barriers to learning can be reduced. School success and academic achievement are built on a strong foundation of healthy students who learn in safe and caring school environments.
These tables show student reports on six unhealthy actions or activities – drinking alcohol, use of illegal drugs, smoking, skipping breakfast, watching excessive amounts of television, and spending excessive time using e-mail, instant messaging, or chat rooms. You would like to see that a relatively low percentage of students respond positively to each of these questions. Therefore, the numbers reported in each column should be low – 0% would be ideal.
