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 that require the use of 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.

Research can only be conducted during the following time-lines. Any individual or organization interested in conducting research MUST submit a research request during the designated window. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made.

To conduct research between:

(September 25th, 2014 to November 21st, 2014), a request must be submitted and approved at the district level between July 30th, 2014 - August 29th, 2014 before the beginning of the new school year.

(January 12th, 2015 to May 8th, 2015), a request must be submitted and approved at the district level between October 1st, 2014 - December 1st, 2014 of the prior year.

Research requests will take up to six weeks to process. Please take into consideration the process time of a request when determining the start date of the research study.

Incomplete submissions will not be considered. Any research request with missing information pertinent to the review process such as surveys, interview questions, or proposals will be considered incomplete and therefore not considered. The research request REQUIRES specific details that outlines the purpose and methodology of the research study or intent of the project.

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.
