Nonacademic Tests, Questionnaires, Surveys, and Exams
The school district created this resource page in accordance with the requirements of a new Kansas law known as House Bill 2567, Section 27, which took effect July 1, 2022. This webpage will host resource links to nonacademic tests, questionnaires, surveys and exams that may be available to students. Written parental consent is required for students to participate when these types of surveys or exams include questions about personal and private attitudes, values and beliefs, as well as practices of the student, parents, guardians, family members, associates, friends and/or peers.When administering Nonacademic Tests, Questionnaires, Surveys, and Exams, the district will notify parents/guardians in writing no more than four months before administration of the Nonacademic Test, Questionnaire, Survey, and Exam (NTQSE). The notification will be sent to parents/guardians via email and will include a copy of the NTQSE. The notice will describe how the parent provides written consent, provide the name of the company or entity that produces or provides the survey, and explain how the data will be used.The parent must “opt-in” with consent in writing or electronic signature for each NTQSE. The district will utilize electronic signatures through the secured Skyward Family Access. The student may “opt-out” of the NTQSE and must be informed of this right. A copy of the NTQSE is available on this webpage (below).The district is embracing family engagement and transparency by asking parents to also "opt-in" their students for participation in other screeners and measures. Information related to other screeners and measures is on this webpage.
