Parent Survey is LIVE


Riverhead CAP’s first parent survey is now live. The  anonymous online survey allows parents and guardians of Riverhead Central School District students in grades 4-12 a chance to help shape how CAP will plan and deliver future prevention programs. Participants also have the opportunity to win one of four $50 gift cards for offering their responses.

CAP’s parent survey is designed to measure parental attitudes about youth substance use, as well as the kind of prevention programs, workshops, and content parents are most interested in. Available in English or Spanish, it takes less than 15 minutes to complete.

“This is an opportunity for parents and guardians to help us plan and deliver prevention programs in a meaningful way,” said Felicia Scocozza, CAP’s executive director. “We really want to know what kind of offerings you are interested in, for both yourself and your children.”

Increasing Parent Participation

CAP was recently awarded a 5-year Federal Partnerships for Success grant from SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). The purpose of the grant is to create sustainable prevention and early intervention services in Riverhead. One of the goals is to increase parent participation in prevention and wellness activities.

“This parent survey is the first step toward that goal,” added Scocozza, noting that participants can enter the drawing for one of four $50 gift cards in a separate link. Winners can choose a gift card from Amazon, Target, Tanger Outlets, or Stop & Shop.

Parents and guardians can access the English survey here and the Spanish survey here. The deadline to complete the parent survey is June 25th.

outreach Events

CAP will also be organizing outreach events for in-person survey completion, in particular with Spanish-speaking community members. Individuals and community groups can also submit paper surveys. Contact Riverhead CAP at 631-727-3722 or for English and Spanish copies.

“We are excited about the opportunity for parent input, and hoping for broad community participation in the parent survey,” said Scocozza.
