Research in Rockingham County Schools
Approval of Research
Prior to conducting research with staff or students in Rockingham County Schools, the researcher must obtain approval from the Director of Testing and Research. The process usually includes submission of a letter of request and supporting documents such as an Institutional Review Board (IRB) document and a sample of the survey or interview protocol. The district reviews the request and considers the level of intrusiveness of the research, level of confidentiality and importance of the research objectives to the education field and district.
For a review of a research project proposal, please send documents to:
