Utah State Board of Education Survey
A Utah State Board of Education task force is working to identify barriers that may prevent educational excellence in public schools. This survey includes questions about your satisfaction with Utah schools and why you feel the way you do. It is anonymous and only takes a few minutes. Please take a moment to make sure your opinion is recorded and then share this link with your Utah neighbors, friends, and colleagues.
13 Reasons Why Netflix Series: The Utah State Board of Education wants the following documents shared with all staff, posted on district and school websites and made available to parents:
- 13 Reasons Why Talking Points
- Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide
- Community Resources
- Tips for Talking about Suicide
The bottom line: If a student wants to watch the series, we tell them to watch it with a parent. We are also telling parents to watch it with their child due to the graphic content, language and storyline glamorizing suicide. If a student has already watched the series, we recommend the parent review the Talking Points with them.
