• Requests to Conduct Research

    Our District recognizes the value of educational research, but our 
    first priority is our students and staff.  The Office reviews all research requests to ensure they do not create unnecessary disruptions of student learning, burdensome paperwork and processes, nor inappropriate uses of information. All research requests must provide documentation that they are in compliance with local and Federal requirements designed to protect research participants. These conditions are outlined in the following documents. 

    All researchers are required to submit the following 3 documents:

    Researchers should complete these forms and email them to drea@pghschools.org.

    Researchers who plan any contact with students are also required to submit state and Federal Child Abuse and Criminal Clearances. These clearances must be dated within one year of a new research application, and approved researchers must provide updated forms every two years.
