This application serves as part of the written agreement under the studies exception of the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), under Guidance for Reasonable Methods and Written Agreements. The purpose, scope, and duration of the study as well as information to be disclosed are outlined in this document above. I understand that any changes to these will require an updated research application, which will be subject to a new approval process.
The educational records disclosed will only be used to meet the purposes of the study as detailed above. The study will be conducted in such a manner that does not permit the personal identification of parents and students by anyone other than researchers. Steps will be taken throughout the cycle of the study to ensure the confidentiality of personally identifiable information, including the final report or product using best practices ( see http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-122/sp800-122.pdf). Data will not be disclosed to other parties without written permission from the district. All personally identifiable information will be destroyed when the information is no longer needed for the purposes of the study. A specific deadline for this disposal will be given in the letter of approval if permission is granted to conduct the study.
