There are moments in the year that it is important to ask questions that are considered non-academic; tests, Questionnaires, Surveys and Exams that include questions about personal and private attitudes, values and beliefs, as well as practices of the student, parents, guardians, family members, associates, friends and/or peers.
Screeners and other measures that impact academic progress and instructional practice (SAEBRS, Panorama, Trusted Adult Surveys, etc.) are not subject to review according to HB 2562; however, as a district, we have decided to post these types of surveys and ask parents to "opt in" to the surveys as outlined below.
When administering Non- Academic Tests, Questionnaires, Surveys and Exams (NTQSE)
USD 250 will:
- Post a copy of the NTQSE on the school district website.
- Notify the parent in writing in advance of the NTQSE with information about the company or entity; and explain how the data will be used.
Provide the option to “opt-in” with consent in writing or electronic signature for each NTQSE.
The student may “opt-out” of the NTQSE, and must be informed of this right.
