All requests for conducting research studies within School District 39 by private individuals pursuing graduate research, outside agencies or school employees must be submitted in writing to the Superintendent of Schools. Consideration for permitting these studies will be based upon appropriateness of the research and value to the District. Only those requests will be considered where there will be no identification of any individual child and anonymity is assured in writing. Where individual children are active participants in research, informed consent of the parent(s)/guardian(s) will be secured in writing. With the Superintendent’s approval, schools may be identified in research projects.
