The surveys, conducted in the fall of odd-numbered years, are supported by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), the Colorado Department of Public Safety (CDPS), the Colorado Department of Education (CDE), and an advisory group of state and local stakeholders. The surveys are administered by a team of researchers at the Colorado School of Public Health (CSPH) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
CDPHE focuses on statewide and regional survey results, while the CSPH Survey Team aids schools and districts with accessing and interpreting their local results.
