2019 Minnesota Student Survey The Caledonia School District is asking students in grades 5, 8, 9 and 11 to participate in the 2019 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) in January and February 2019. 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. This survey is anonymous. To prevent individuals or families from being identified, students do not provide their names, student identification numbers or other personal information. This survey is voluntary. You may choose to have your child not take the survey by completing and returning the form that will be mailed to you. Students may also decline to take any part of the survey or the whole survey. They are informed of that option by staff. A letter will be mailed to parents of students in grades 5,8,9,and 11 with more information about the survey.
