MySaebrs/Saebrs is a screening tool that helps school staff pinpoint if a student is at risk socially, academically, and emotionally. This tool will be administered to students whose parents have consented for its administration, between November 28, 2022 and February 3, 2023. To learn more about MySaebrs/Saebrs, visit https://www.illuminateed.com/solutions/social-emotional-and-behavior-seb/. Over 70% of schools in Kansas use Saebrs/MySaebrs to identify needs that may present barriers to learning. Results from this survey are one piece of data to help educators identify and provide instruction and interventions within their classrooms. No personally identifiable data of students will be collected through the administration of the survey.
A parent may provide consent for their child to participate in this year’s survey by going here by November 18. The surveys take about 5 minutes and are done on the student’s individual device.
