Over two thousand students from eleven area schools completed a survey about access to technology, feelings of confidence, and the presence of adults who are interested in their lives. The survey, conducted by the Search Institute for the Itasca Area Initiative for Student Success, revealed some concerns and some victories. Two percent of teens did not feel safe at home. Sixty-four percent said they have families who give them love and support.
Fifty-five percent of students were members of a club, groups, or sporting activity. Sixty-one percent said they had an adult in their life- who is not a parent- who cared about them. Fifty percent of students surveyed thought they lived in a safe neighborhood.
