Steven Kerr

Merrillville Community School Corporation will conduct a survey of students in grades 6-12 during the week of March 4-8, 2024. Parents and guardians will receive a letter from their child's school with details about the Indiana Youth Survey (INYS) prior to the survey date.

The survey is anonymous and does not collect individual student names. Its purpose is to identify factors that could pose a challenge to student performance. 

The Indiana Youth Survey (INYS) is a biennial survey that assesses students' substance use, mental health, gambling, and risk and protective factors that may impact student success. The survey is anonymous and does not collect individual student names. Participating schools receive a corporation-level report of their students’ responses.
