Third Gender Indentifier on 2022 WY Student Survey
The Wyoming Prevention Needs Assessment (PNA) survey is administered every two years to every WY student in the 6th, 8th, 10th, and 12th grades. The 2022 PNA will be the eleventh time the survey has been conducted, and the first time the demographic component for gender has changed from "Male" or "Female" to: "Boy or Man", "Girl or Woman", or "Some Other Way".
According to the website (https://www.pnasurvey.org), "Since the PNA is not federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education and does not require student participation (participation is voluntary), active [parental] consent is not required." (https://www.pnasurvey.org/Tools/SurveyDocs#docs-consent).
