Stringham was incensed with the question containing the "even though you are straight" clause, which she said suggested could offend LGBTQ students, as well as one asking whether students had been kissed involuntarily, which she alleged shamed sexual assault victims.

"The school issued an apology on Monday, saying "[We] want to extend our honest apology to the students who were asked to complete this questionnaire, as well as their parents and we assure you this survey will not be used in the future". They were then graded on a scale from nerd, "pure as ivory soap and maybe a fruitcake" and "hopeless and condemned". Administrators found out about it when a parent complained to the school Friday, and another over the weekend, he said. He said district policy notes that teachers are expected to use "professional judgment and discretion in providing age-appropriate material".

"It's just alarming", she said.

"[We] want to extend our honest apology to the students who were asked to complete this questionnaire, as well as their parents and we assure you this survey will not be used in the future", they said in a statement.

The teacher gave juniors at Roy High School, about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City, the 30-question survey as part of an "Adult Roles" course, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

"Occasionally, we do make mistakes and if we do, we'll own those and do whatever we need to correct those", said Lane Findlay from the Weber School District.

"Our district takes great pride in providing quality education to over 31,000 students in Weber County", Findlay said in a statement.

It is against federal and Utah law to survey students about sexual behaviors, orientation, attitudes and involvement in any illegal or incriminating behavior, according to the Standard Examiner.
