Schedule A time for students to Synchronously

complete the Survey

Students can complete the survey during homeroom, advisory, or a subject all seniors take.  School staff should follow up with students who have not completed it. Let us know when you will administer the survey and who will conduct follow-up by clicking the link below.


Let Parents KNow

Students who are under 18 should share a flyer about the study with parents/guardians that contains information about the project and directions on how parents/guardians can opt their student out of participation. Counselors should distribute this to all students prior to administering the survey. Click below to download the flyer!



Let students know how to take the survey with you or other staff by sending information using the following methods or other ways you know will get students’ attention.

  • Administer during advisory or a class period.

  • Post  as an assignment in your learning management system (Schoology, Google Classroom, etc.).

  • Email the survey link and info to graduating seniors.

  • Post to the school’s social media accounts (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter)

  • Ask student government representatives to share the link on their student group chat.

  • Send the survey link and attachment on the Remind app.


During the administration window, counselors may access real-time lists of which students have either completed the survey or declined to take it so that they know who to follow-up with.
