SCHOOL COMMUNITY RELATIONS
3160 RELATIONS WITH EDUCATION RESEARCH AND SERVICE CENTERS

It is the policy of the Brockport Central School District to cooperate as far as possible with the colleges, universities, and other agencies in promoting potentially beneficial research. Decisions in connection with research involving students, teachers, or other employees are made by the Superintendent or his/her designee and are based on the following:

  1. a) The project should be so designed that it can be expected to produce valid and reliable results.
  2. b) It should be expected to contribute something useful and of value for the improvement of education in general and the Brockport Central School District in particular.
  3. c) Questionnaires and interview questions must be submitted in advance to the Superintendent's Office and must not include items which invade the area of personal rights or which raise questions of a personal nature relative to economic status, race, creed, color, disability, religion, marital status, age, political affiliation and national origin.
  4. d) Written informed parental/guardian consent is required, in accordance with law, prior to student participation in any study or survey. Specific identification of students is prohibited.
  5. e) Outlines must be submitted and should be of sufficient scope and depth to justify the time and effort to be consumed.
  6. f) In general, it is our policy not to interrupt the work of students or teachers unless there seems to be real potential in the study.
  7. g) In the case of student projects, prior written approval by a faculty member of the institution attended will be required. This faculty member shall have some responsibility related to the student's project.
  8. h) School employees will not receive compensation or other benefits for participating in surveys unless approved in advance by the Superintendent of Schools.
  9. i) The District will receive the results of such studies.

Anyone wishing to conduct a research study using Brockport students or staff members must complete Research Study Approval Form.
