The Bangor School Department wants to know what it needs to do to improve student mental health. But first she needs data on the well-being of her students.

That’s why an advisory group is recommending that Bangor students for the first time take a statewide student health survey, which the Bangor School Department has long refused to participate in. An advisory group focused on student mental health made the recommendation Wednesday to the Bangor School Committee.

If the Bangor School Department gets the group on board with its recommendation to participate in the Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey, it would mark an about-face for Maine’s fourth-largest school district.
