This survey is administered in the Fall every other year as part of the Title IV, Part A, Safe and Drug Free Schools program. The survey is only administered to grades 7 and 9, and participation on behalf of students is voluntary. Staff should encourage students to participate in the survey, and incentives may be offered (parties, snacks, etc).
Because our students are above grade level 6, our District can utilize the"passive consent" method. This means parents must sign a form declining that their child participate, rather than necessitating a signed permission form for each student taking the survey.
