SEED Survey:   Elevating Student Voice

The Molalla River School District is deeply committed to helping each and every student learn, grow and thrive. We want to support students in reaching their full potential. We also want to provide opportunities for feedback and input so we can continue to improve as a school district. Over the next several weeks, students in grades 3-11 will be asked to take a short 10-15 minute SEED survey (Student Educational Equity Development Survey). The SEED Survey will help ODE gather information about the educational experiences of students in Oregon. This information will help ODE to develop appropriate resources and supports for districts in Oregon, and better target those resources where they are most needed. Students will be completing the survey as a school activity. The survey will ask students: About the kinds of activities they did in school this year; what supplies they had to help with schoolwork; and how they felt about school and learning this year.

Oregon law (House Bill 2656) permits parents or guardians to decline, either verbally or in writing, to have their student participate in the SEED Survey. Parents and adult students may submit the SEED Survey Participation Form (see below) if they wish to decline participating in the SEED Survey. Students can skip questions within the survey if they do not want to or cannot respond for any reason.
