Based on ASD Board Policy 826, surveys and research that take place within the Anchorage School District (ASD) require prior approval. Staff and student time is valuable. While the ASD encourages educational research and the collection of information for educational decision making, the need for research and the collection of information is always balanced against the ASD mission. Surveys and research that do not support the mission of the school district and take time from instruction may not be approved.
A Research Request Form must be submitted to the Assessment and Evaluation Department for review prior to any approval. No survey or study can be approved without the submission of complete and final copies of surveys and data collection instruments.
Supervisors and Principals should not allow surveys or research to take place at the facility they supervise unless the individual or organization that wishes to conduct the survey or research can demonstrate prior written ASD approval. When prior parent approval is required for student participation, no student may be allowed to participate in a survey or research project without documentation of the parent permission.
