Safe and Drug-Free Schools Survey

The Missouri Student Survey (also known as the Safe and Drug- Free Schools Survey), has been administered to LPS students at the secondary level every other year since 2000. This year Liberty Public Schools will again participate in this survey. Students are not asked to identify themselves and no individual student responses are reported or maintained. Survey results are not reported to or maintained by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.


This survey is a valuable tool to learn more about students’ tobacco, drug, and alcohol use, as well as bullying, mental health, and other information. The results are important to our district as we plan prevention activities and provide information necessary for local grant applications.


Liberty Academy will administer this survey in March. If you have any questions, please let Mrs. Norris know.
