External Research in Canyons School District
The central focus of Canyons School District is student learning. Limiting interruptions to instructional time is important and helps to support quality instruction and student learning. While the Canyons School District (CSD) is committed to the advancement of educational research, the quantity of external research projects proposed to the District tends to be larger than the District can accommodate. Additionally, several of the projects proposed are inconsistent with the District’s mission and/or do not appear to be grounded in a valid research design. Therefore, we have developed a formal process to review requests to conduct research in the District.
At the bottom of this page is the complete Research Application Form (in MS Word).
The Canyons Research Review Committee reviews applications monthly from August through April. The last date for new research applications is April 21st approximately 50 days prior to the end of the school year. The District reserves the right to extend that period should the need arise. However, research activities at the beginning and end of the school year and during periods of testing must be avoided.
