2019 Minnesota Student Survey
The Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District is asking students in grades 5, 8, 9 and 11 to particiapate in the 2019 Minnesota Student Survey during the week of Jan. 28, 2019. This survey is conducted in schools across the state every three years. The survey is given to obtain useful information from students about how things are going at school, with their peers, and about health-related thoughts and behaviors. This information helps our district develop and maintain effective programs and provide services at school and through community groups.
The district has informed parents of such surveys in the past and Federal law requires us to notify parents of this school activity. The survey is anonymous and confidential. Students do not provide their names, student identification numbers, or other personal information.
The results are reported on the school level as a whole and results will be shared when it becomes available. The privacy of students is protected at all times. You are welcome to review a copy of the survey as well as other helpful information.
Letters to parents were sent via SchoolMessenger in December. The letter, including versions translated into Spanish, Somali and Vietnamese, is available below.
All updates and key information about the survey are currently available on the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) website, including key changes and frequently asked questions.
