This policy will apply to all non-academic and non-educational surveys and questionnaires implemented, used and conducted by the District. For the purposes of this policy “non-academic survey or non-educational questionnaire” means “surveys, questionnaires or other documents designed to elicit information about a student’s social behavior, family life, religion, politics, sexual orientation, sexual activity, drug use, or any other information not related to a student’s academics” or as otherwise may be defined by applicable state law or Department of Education regulation.
Parents and/or guardians will be notified at least ten (10) days prior to the District administering a non-academic or non-educational survey to students.
The surveys or questionnaire will be available at the school and on the school/school district’s website so that parents and/or guardians can review the survey or questionnaire prior to it being administered.
No student is required to submit to a non-academic survey or questionnaire without obtaining written consent of a parent or legal guardian.
Written consent from parents or legal guardians is not required for the completion of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
