 SFUSD Research Application

All researchers interested in conducting research in SFUSD must complete the Application to Conduct Research in the SFUSD, which now includes: 
     * Research Study Application
     * Survey Application
     * Data use agreement (DUA)

Note to Researchers: The State of California ended the use of the California Standards Tests (CST) during the 2012-2013 school year, and has started using the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) online assessments.  Consequently, research projects will not have access to CST scores as those assessments are no longer being administered.  If you have further questions, please send an email to Jan Link at linkj@sfusd.edu or feel free to call our office at 415-241-6516.

The application deadline is March 15, 2016 for research to be conducted in the 2016-17 school year.
