2022 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) - Reminder Message

2022 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) - Reminder Message

As previously communicated from our district office on December 20, 2021, our school district will be conducting the 2022 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS). This survey will occur next week and we want to be sure families are aware of the survey and it's details listed below.

Our school district is asking students in grades 5, 8, 9 and 11 to participate in the 2022 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS). Federal law requires us to notify parents of this school activity. The MSS is conducted in schools across our state every three years. 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.

The Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) will be administered the week of February 14, 2022.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact:  daniel.athman@isd47.org
