Minnesota Student Survey

  • Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) is asking students in grades 5, 8, 9 and 11 to participate in the 2019 Minnesota Student Survey (MSS). 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 use 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. Results from the survey will be made public in the fall.

    Date(s) the Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) will be administered in SPPS: February 11-April 29, 2019
