186:11 Duties of State Board of Education. – The state board of education shall, in addition to the duties assigned by RSA 21-N:11: IX-d. Require school districts to adopt a policy governing the administration of non-academic surveys or questionnaires to students. The policy shall require school districts to notify a parent or legal guardian of a non-academic survey or questionnaire and its purpose. The school district shall make such surveys or questionnaires available, at the school and on the school or school district’s website, for review by a student’s parent or legal guardian at least 10 days prior to distribution to students. The policy shall also allow a parent or legal guardian to opt out of the non-academic survey or questionnaire either in writing or electronically. In this paragraph, “non-academic survey or questionnaire” means surveys, questionnaires, or other documents designed to elicit information about a student’s social behavior, family life, religion, politics, sexual orientation, sexual activity, drug use, or any other information not related to a student’s academics. The funding source for Laconia School District’s Project EXTRA requests Youth Surveys be administered twice per year as part of the afterschool evaluation process.
Please see examples of the surveys below:
Older Youth Survey
Younger Youth Survey
Parents/Guardians have the opportunity to opt out of their child(ren) participating in this process. Please feel free to contact your school’s Afterschool Site Coordinator if you choose to opt out or if you have any questions.
