It is the goal of the Fort Bend Independent School District and the Department of Innovation and Continuous Improvement to support research efforts that will contribute not only to the development of students and teachers in the district, but also in the field of education.
Each year, Fort Bend ISD receives a number of requests to participate in research studies. Researchers are required to provide a Research Study Application for proposed research projects that fall within the district guidelines for conducting research. The Research Study Application is designed to provide the reviewers with sufficient information in order to reach a decision about the appropriateness of Fort Bend ISD participation in the research project. Your application will be evaluated based on such aspects as a) thoroughness, b) clarity of purpose, c) potential benefit(s) to students/teachers, d) soundness of research design, e) appropriateness of instruments, f) practicality of time involvement, and g) maintenance of confidentiality of study subjects.
