Research in St. Louis Park
St. Louis Park Public Schools sees tremendous value in education research. Our department manages all requests to conduct research in SLP Schools. We prioritize student and staff data privacy and take every measure to ensure that studies are conducted ethically. When evaluating any proposal to conduct research in our district, we also evaluate the proposal’s ability to help us work toward our mission: As a caring, diverse community with a tradition of putting its children first, we will ensure all students attain their highest level of achievement; prepare all students to contribute to society; offer high quality opportunities for lifelong learning; provide multiple pathways to excellence; challenge all learners to meet high standards; and provide a safe and nurturing environment that energizes and enhances the spirit. We use our mission as a lens to help us determine if a study should be conducted in our system when a proposal is sent to our district.
Procedure: Start by reading the research proposal form that must be submitted along with other documents. The window for approving or denying research proposals will be made in 4-6 weeks.
