The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction must incorporate an adverse childhood experiences (ACE) module into the healthy youth survey to help assess the prevalence of ACEs in middle and high school students. Student responses to the survey are voluntary and anonymous. The aggregated responses must be published by state, educational service district, county, school district, and school building. School districts are encouraged to use the information about ACEs in their decision-making and to help improve services for students.
