2022 Student Survey

Dear Parent/Caregiver,

On an annual basis, students in grades 4-12 are invited to participate in a school survey. On April 12, this survey will be conducted at the classroom level using an anonymous Google Form. Results help us evaluate students' daily learning experiences and their sense of belonging in the school community. In order to keep you informed, we are providing a copy of the survey questions included in the 2022 ISD110 Student Survey. Please complete this form if you do not wish to have your child participate.

Hard copies of the survey are also available at the district office, 512 Industrial Blvd., Waconia, MN 55387. The organization helping with the search, MSBA, will summarize responses during a school board presentation on April 14.

ACT/Pre-ACT Testing - APRIL 5th

On Tuesday, April 5th, we will be doing ACT testing (Juniors) and Pre-ACT testing (Freshmen/Sophomores).
Seniors will not have school on April 5th. Seniors may be assigned asynchronous work depending on course/teacher.

Once students have completed their testing, they will be dismissed for the day.
Lunch will be served for those that want to stay and eat. If your student needs to ride the regular bus route, they can stay at the high school for the remainder of the day.
The Pre-ACT test will take approximately 3 hours, so students will be dismissed around 11:30AM. The ACT test will take a little bit longer and juniors will be dismissed around 1:00PM.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via e-mail at, or you can contact Tim Koschinska via e-mail at
