Assessments and Surveys

SEEDS Survey information 2020-21

This year, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) is conducting a pilot survey to find out more about student experiences in Oregon schools. Our district has decided to participate.

The survey is called the SEED Survey (the Student Educational Equity Development Survey). This survey will ask students about what kinds of activities they did in school this year, what supplies they had to help with schoolwork, and how they felt about school and learning this year. The information gathered in this survey will be used by ODE and districts to better support student learning and help improve schools and education in Oregon.


This survey will help us gather true student voices of what took place this year.


The survey is a school activity and can be completed on site or remotely. Participation in the SEED Survey is optional. You may decline participation of your child for any reason. Students also have the ability to skip questions within the survey if they do not want to or cannot respond for any reason.


Practice versions of the survey can be found here: Grades 3-5 practice form, Grades 6+ practice form. You can find full versions of all the surveys on the ODE SEED Survey page.


If you have questions or concerns about the SEED Survey, or you wish to decline participation, please contact your school or fill out the attached opt-out form.

Student Health Survey

Our school is participating in the Student Health Survey, which is sponsored by the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division and the Oregon Department of Education. The survey will gather information about health risk behaviors of students in grades 6, 8 and 11. The survey will be conducted online either in the classroom or remotely, and includes questions about:

  • Student health and safety

  • Student mental and behavioral health

  • School climate and culture.

Completing the Student Health Survey poses minimal risk to your child, who may feel embarrassed or uncomfortable answering some of the questions. Survey procedures have been designed to protect your child's privacy and allow for anonymous participation. If your child is not comfortable answering a question, they can leave it blank. While we encourage all students to participate, the decision to participate is voluntary.

You may opt to send a refusal for your child's participation. Alternatively, your child will have the opportunity to refuse at the time of the survey. There will be no action against you or your child if your child does not participate.

The survey will be conducted from June 1 to June 11, 2021. The survey is available to review on the Oregon Health Authority's website, healthoregon.org/shs, or at your school's office. If you have any questions, please call your school's office, fill out this form, or email info@central.k12.or.us.
