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 is 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 strong 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 early August through early April. The last date for new research applications is April 3rd. The District reserves the right to extend that period should the need arise. However, research activities at the beginning/end of the school year and during periods of testing must be avoided.
All researchers need to plan on the review process taking three to four weeks.
