I am currently working on my action research project as part of the Educational Leadership Master’s Degree program at Keene State College. The purpose of this project is to explore expectations held by families and school staff for the different roles within a school system and how well those expectations match school objectives and outcomes.
I will be asking you to complete a survey about your expectations for the roles and responsibilities of families, teachers, and principals; and about individual responsibility for reaching the school’s mission. This survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes and will be completed anonymously.
I am asking for your consent to participate by completing the survey questions and allowing use of any data collected during my study. Your information will remain confidential and your name will not be on any surveys. If you choose to participate in a focus group, your contact information will be kept confidential and your name will not be used in the research documents.The information gathered will be shared with Keene State College faculty and students.
Potential benefits of this study include learning more about perceptions that we hold about one another’s responsibilities so that we may better partner to improve our school community. There are no known risks to participating in this study. Any participant can choose to withdraw at any time without prejudice for not participating in any part of the action research.
Once data has been collected you will have the opportunity to obtain further information on this project. At any time if you find that you have additional questions about this study, you may contact me at 603-239-4381 or at email@example.com. You may also contact my supervising professor, Ellen Nuffer at 603-358-2298 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
