Conducting EXTERNAL research at north east isd
North East Independent School District supports high quality external research that contributes to education and above all, "every student, every day."
However, at the same time, the district has moral and legal obligations that require the oversight of external research projects utilizing district resources such as data, facilities, employee's, and student's time.
In order to conduct any research (this also includes any distribution of surveys to students, parents, teachers, staff) at North East ISD, the research request submission process must be completed online.

NO EXCEPTIONS will be made.

The research request is for district-level approval only. If the research request is approved, North East ISD is simply granting permission to proceed in approaching campuses or district personnel. District-level approval to conduct research is not an endorsement or requires any personnel of the District to participate. A decision letter will further stipulate any terms and conditions of the approval.
The researcher/primary investigator will be required to show the decision letter to each campus and personnel upon solicitation to request participation. If the research request is not approved, a letter will be sent via email notifying the requestor of the decision.
