Minnesota Student Survey: Minnesota students want to tell us how they are doing, and what they need to thrive and succeed. We just need to ask them! The Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) helps us do that.

2022 Minnesota Student Survey


The Red Lake School District is asking students in grades 5, 8, 9 and 11 to participate in the 2022 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS).  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 abuse 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.

Date(s) the Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) will be administered: The week of February 7.

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.  For more information on the Red Lake School District Protection of Pupil Rights, click Independent School District #38 (core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com) .

This survey is voluntary.  If you do not want your child to participate, please notify their homeroom/advisory teacher by Thursday, February 3.  Students may also decline to take any part of the survey or the whole survey.  They are informed of that option by staff.
