2019 MN Student Survey
MINNESOTA STUDENT SURVEY
Alexandria Public Schools will be administering the Minnesota Student Survey to students in grades 5, 8 9 and 11 the week of January 7, 2019. This survey is conducted in schools across our state every three years. Federal law requires us to notify parents of this activity to inform you of your right to review the survey and/or opt your child out of participation.
Questions on the survey are about many topics relating to young people’s lives. The survey asks about how well school is going, future plans, out-of-school activities, physical and mental health, relationships, substance use and more. High school students are asked about sexual behavior. This useful information about their thoughts and behaviors helps communities and schools develop effective programs and provide better services.
This survey is anonymous. To prevent individuals or families from being identified, students do not provide their names, student identification numbers or other personal information.
You have the right to review a copy of the survey. For details on how to do this, please contact your child’s school principal.
This survey is voluntary. You may choose to have your child not take the survey by completing and returning the form below. Students may also decline to take any part of the survey or the whole survey. They are informed of that option by staff.
