In Joshua ISD, we use surveys to measure perceptions, feelings and thoughts of individual students. The district engages in surveying students to:

  • Improve each student’s overall school experience
  • Better understand the needs of students in order to remove barriers to learning
  • Comply with state/federal law requiring the capture of student voice

In some cases, surveys may require the parent/guardian to opt in or opt out of the survey in order for their child to participate. In Joshua ISD, we define opt in and opt out in the following:

  • Opt In: Students will NOT take the survey unless they have specifically signed up to participate in the survey
  • Opt Out: Students will AUTOMATICALLY take the survey unless the parent/guardian opts out of the survey

Each survey given has different state and local requirements. The choice to opt in or out of a survey is usually dependent on state or local policy.

In the Joshua ISD, we give the following surveys to students:
