Tennessee Together Survey Information

On behalf of the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS), Maryville City Schools has been invited to participate in the Tennessee Together Student Survey. The Tennessee Together Student Survey is funded through Governor Haslam’s TN Together initiative, which is focused on addressing the opioid epidemic in Tennessee. Results from the student survey will be used to assess the extent of alcohol, drug, and tobacco use and prescription drug misuse among students in Tennessee and to evaluate the impact of prevention efforts aimed at reducing substance use.

Maryville High: 10th and 12th grade Activity Period, November 14th

The survey will be administered to students electronically in grades 8, 10, and 12.  Survey procedures have been designed to protect your child’s privacy by allowing for anonymous participation.  Your student will not put his/her name on the survey and will not be required to answer any question he/she deems sensitive.  Participation by your student is strictly voluntary.  A copy of the Tennessee Together Survey is available in the MHS student services office and the MJHS office as well as here.  For frequently asked questions, click here.
