GCQB - Research

Code: GCQB
Adopted: 8/13/97 

Employees are encouraged to participate in research for the development and improvement of education.  If an employee plans to engage in a research project during the work day or use district resources or students, either for study toward advanced work or for use in classroom instruction, approval must be secured from the superintendent.  If the study results in material which would be useful to other employees, it is recommended that it be made available for distribution throughout the district.  For the protection of all concerned, privacy rights of students or other individuals involved in research projects must be protected.

Research which is conducted by or for a non-district employee must be approved by the superintendent or designee.
