I've received numerous calls, Facebook messages and emails from parents/friends who want to know what this is "all about." They have seen a few of the questions from the survey posted here and elsewhere and are outraged. Parents are feeling that a government-run school should not be digging into the sex lives (or lack thereof) of their kids. I agree. This has crossed the line of parental authority.
While the survey letter indicates a parent can opt out, why is this an automatic OPT IN? Why wasn't a return reply envelope included to encourage parents to send their opt OUT response back to the District?
The letter home should have indicated that a response was REQUIRED one way or the other, and included a return envelope.
WB East HS Principal Cassandra Schug has indicated that parents can COME IN to review the "updated" survey, but it has not been made available via the internet. Most certainly this survey can be scanned and posted quite easily.
This is unacceptable.
Call or email your school board members IMMEDIATELY and ask to have this PLACED ON THE AGENDA as an "action item" to be discussed as a board.
