Every year, in California, a health survey is administered to students in grades five, seven, nine, and eleven. For students in the fifth grade, an opt-in letter must be signed by parents. Students in grades seven, nine, and eleven will be required to fill out this survey unless a parent has signed a letter to opt them out.
Every parent should review this survey before permitting their child to take it. We have included links to these surveys and opt out forms (for the CUSD) here:
Opt Out form (grades 7,9,11)
Opt IN form (grade 5)
These surveys are the same from district to district, but the opt in and opt out letters may differ as these are designed to be customizable. The templates for these letters can be found HERE. If you are unable to procure an actual opt-in or opt-out form from your school or district, you should be able to use the form found on the CDE website.
Please forward this information on to your friends and neighbors. ALL parents need to become more aware of what is happening in their children’s schools; this is one good step forward.
