The Washington Assessment of the Risks and Needs of Students (WARNS survey) is a brief (40+ questions) survey for middle and high school students and is designed to allow schools to assess individual risks and needs that may lead to truancy and/or school failure. The WARNS survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to administer and asks students about past and current experiences in his or her life. The purpose of the WARNS survey is to help schools gather data to create meaningful truancy interventions tailored to each student's needs. The survey will also help schools develop better programs to promote social, emotional, and educational development, as well as selecting appropriate, meaningful truancy interventions.
