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.
