Student Voice Surveys

From February 6-17, students will have the opportunity to complete the Student Voice survey.  This anonymous assessment allows students an opportunity to give feedback on specific aspects of his or her classroom experience. The survey takes approximately 10–20 minutes to complete and will be conducted during the school day.

The purpose of the survey is to provide an opportunity for all Kentucky students to have a voice in their classroom experience. Survey results are intended for the teacher to use for self-reflection and as a tool to help guide professional practice. Teachers want to know if their students feel sufficiently challenged, engaged, and comfortable asking them for help.

Click here for the opt-out letter if you do not wish for your child to take the survey.

If this applies, please return the signed letter prior to February 6th.

SBDM Athletic Tryout Policy:

If a student is not passing 6 classes by 3:15 on the first day of tryouts, that student is ineligible to tryout and therefore ineligible to participate that season.

Athletic Director's Note: Students will need to let each particular sport's coach know your intentions to tryout prior to 3:15 on the day of tryouts in order to be in compliance with the policy.  If your name is not included on that list, you are ineligible to tryout.
