Research & Survey Approval

  • Evanston Township High School District 202 encourages research that provides a basis for improving school processes and student learning within the district as well as research that contributes to the field of education in the areas of theory and practice. While the district encourages educational research, the need for research and the collection of information is always balanced against the district’s objectives.

    • Research (i.e. surveys, interviews, etc.) must support the school district goals and objectives in order to be approved
    • Research must meet district policy or state and federal laws or regulations

    Per Board policy, surveys and research conducted within the district require prior review and written approval from the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment. This includes surveys and research carried out by school district employees, departments, or committees. 

    To request approval to conduct research or a survey:

    • Submit a written proposal that meets the specifics outlined in the Research & Survey Approval Procedures to the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment for review
    • Submitters may be asked to answer questions about the proposal or to make modifications prior to approval or denial of the request

    For a given school year, research requests will be reviewed through December 15th. After December 15th, all requests will be considered for the following school year. The timeline for approval varies with each proposal.
