  • Biennial C.A.P.E. Youth Survey

    The 2017 Dutchess County Youth Survey  

    Every two years, in partnership with CAPE of DC, public school districts in Dutchess County voluntarily participate in a youth survey.  This survey, under the umbrella of CAPE’s prevention services, is developed in tandem with the SUNY New Paltz Benjamin Center.

    CAPE is licensed by the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services and is a contract agency of Dutchess County.  Student participation in the survey is voluntarily and anonymous.  The survey is completed online and administered through the schools.  The instrument seeks to gain information about the risks that students face in their worlds and the protective factors that surround them as they travel through adolescence and young adulthood.  This information guides the county in its youth services planning and affords the school districts with important information as they seek to continue to meet the changing social and emotional needs of their students.


    La Encuesta Juvenil del Condado de Dutchess del 2017

    Cada dos años, en asociación con CAPE de DC, los distritos escolares públicos en el condado de Dutchess participan voluntariamente en una encuesta para jóvenes.  Esta encuesta, bajo el auspicio de los servicios de prevención de CAPE, se desarrolla en conjunto con el SUNY New Paltz Benjamin Center.

    CAPE tiene licencia de la Oficina de Servicios de Alcoholismo y Abuso de Sustancias del estado de NY y es una agencia contratada por el Condado de Dutchess.  La participación de los estudiantes en la encuesta es voluntaria y anónima.  La encuesta se completa electrónicamente y se administra a través de las escuelas.  Este instrumento busca obtener información sobre los riesgos que enfrentan los estudiantes en sus ambientes y los factores de protección que los rodean a medida que atraviesan por la adolescencia y la temprana etapa de adulto.  Esta información guía al condado en su planificación de servicios para la juventud y brinda a los distritos escolares información importante a medida que buscan continuar satisfaciendo las cambiantes necesidades sociales y emocionales de sus estudiantes.
