The Minnesota Student Survey (MSS) is a triennial survey of Minnesota students in grades 5, 8, 9 and 11 regarding a variety of risk and protective factors.
The survey asks young people questions about their activities, opinions, behaviors and experiences. The survey is administered in schools, alternative learning centers and juvenile correctional facilities across Minnesota. The purpose of the survey is to provide data for program planning and evaluation, meet state and federal student survey requirements, address relevant issues confronting students, mark trends over time and involve schools/other educational settings statewide and provide data for local use.

Menahga students in grades 5,8, 9 and 11 are asked to take the MSS in March 2016. Federal law requires that parents be notified of this school activity. There are frank questions on the survey about many topics relating to young people’s lives. These include the use of alcohol or other drugs, safety in and around the school, physical activity and nutrition, mental or emotional health (stress, feeling bad), illegal or anti-social behavior (theft, chemical use, fighting) and if religious beliefs affect personal decisions. Questions are asked only of 9th and 11th grade students regarding sexual behavior and attitudes. If students are not involved in an activity, they skip the related questions and go on to the next section. The survey also asks about how well school is going, future plans, how adolescents spend their time and about how the school, family and community support them.

The survey is anonymous and confidential. Students do not provide their names, student identification numbers or other personal information. No individuals or families can be identified. The results are reported on the school district’s students as a whole. The privacy of the students is protected.

The survey is voluntary. You may choose to have your son or daughter not take the survey by contacting Jennifer Berg at 564-4141 x 324 orjberg@menahga.k12.mn.us. Students may decline to take any part of the survey or the whole survey and are informed of that option by staff.  Parents and guardians are welcome to review a copy of the survey.

Survey administration dates are as follows-

March 9, 2016 --9th grade survey administration

March 15, 216—5th grade survey administration

About Our School

The Menahga Public Schools consists of three schools under one roof. The building is a Pre K-12 facility with classrooms, labs, gymnasiums, and other study areas. The schools are connected and many of our older students work as teacher's assistants and help the younger students creating a beneficial learning environment for all.

In an age of financial uncertainty, our district maintains a secure funding which allows us to keep classroom sizes small and maintain both core educational programs and extra curricular activities at little or no cost to our families.

Our school now houses just under 1000 students school wide within the three schools. The buildings are connected making a unique community of students working with each other to achieve their academic goals.

Menahga focuses on the importance of educating our youth with a well-rounded curriculum to provide them with the life long skills needed in today's changing world and for their future. As society changes, we adjust our curriculum to meet the needs of students moving forward in their lives.
