The Search Institute Attitudes & Behaviors Survey has been used in Haddam-Killingworth since 2006.  It is a nationally recognized, reliable, and valid assessment of the strengths, supports, and social-emotional factors essential for young people’s success in school and life. This widely used survey grows out of more than 20 years of research with millions of young people based on Search Institute’s framework of Developmental Assets.

The Developmental Assets are 40 research-based, positive experiences and qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adults.   

Over time, studies of more than 5 million young people consistently show that the more assets that young people have, the less likely they are to engage in a wide range of high-risk behaviors and the more likely they are to thrive.
