  • Political affiliations or beliefs of the student or the student's parent.

  • Mental or psychological problems of the student or the student's family.

  • Sex behavior or attitudes.

  • Illegal, antisocial, self-incriminating or demeaning behavior.

  • Critical appraisals of others with whom respondents have close family relationships.

  • Legally recognized privileged or analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians and ministers.

  • Religious practices, affiliations or beliefs of the student or the student's parent.

  • Income other than as required by law to determine program eligibility.

Notice and Opportunity to Opt Out

In accordance with law, parents will receive prior notice and an opportunity to opt a student out of:

  • Any other protected information survey, as defined above, regardless of the funding source.
