Mahtomedi students in grades 8, 9 and 11 answering "extremely or almost always" to the statement "I accept people who are different from me" on the MN Student Survey will increase from 59% in 2019 to 75% in 2023.
The MN Student Survey is administered every three years so there is no new data for the 2020-2021 school year.
Information about the Minnesota Student Survey:
Action Steps used for 2020-2021:
- The Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) is one of the longest-running youth surveys in the nation. It is a triennial survey that began in 1989. The survey is an anonymous statewide school-based survey conducted to gain insights into the world of students and their experiences. The next MSS will be administered between January and June 2022 to students in grades five, eight, nine and 11.
- The survey is a collaboration between local schools and four state agencies: the Minnesota Departments of Education, Health, Human Services and Public Safety. The state agencies develop the survey content, monitor data quality, analyze data and report results. Schools administer the survey to their students.
Some strategies we plan to initiate or continue during the 2021-2022 school year:
- Equity initiative from our strategic plan and beliefs. The student-led BASE group met biweekly throughout the year and that will continue this year.
- We will sustain (or increase) the number of student organizations and activities to connect kids to school and to each other.
