Student Surveys

  • Under federal law, you have the right to:

    • Inspect instructional materials used in conjunction with a survey, analysis, or evaluation funded by the U.S. Department of Education (ED).
    • Provide written consent before your child participates in ED-funded surveys, analysis, or evaluation that reveals information concerning:
      1. Political affiliations or beliefs of the student or student’s parent;
      2. Mental or psychological problems of the student or student’s family;
      3. Sexual behavior or attitudes;
      4. Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating, or demeaning behavior;
      5. Critical appraisals of others with whom respondents have close family relationships;
      6. Legally recognized privileged relationships, such as with lawyers, doctors, or ministers;
      7. Religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or parents; or
      8. Income, other than as required by law to determine program eligibility.

    If any of these activities are scheduled, the district will provide notice to parents at that time, as well as an opportunity to review the materials.
