4th & 5th GRADE STUDENT SURVEY

Student Survey

  • Each year the District surveys students, staff, and parents to gather information for planning, program evaluation, and assessment of progress on the District's Strategic Plan.

  • The student survey takes about 20 minutes during the regular school day. The data gathered from the survey is anonymous; your child will not put his/her name or other identifying information on the survey. Like other surveys, results will be presented only about groups. No individual data will be reported.

  • The surveys will be given between March 30 - June 4.

  • Your child may skip questions or stop filling out the survey at any time. Refusing to participate or withdrawing from the survey does not affect your child's grades or class standing in any way. If you or your child does not want to participate, your child can read or do some other activity while his or her classmates complete the survey.

  • A copy of the survey is available at the school office and is posted at

https://www.beaverton.k12.or.us/departments/accountabiity/research-reports

  • After reviewing the survey, if you do not want your child to participate, please notify the Nancy Ryles office at 503-356-2400.
