District Offices Research Questions 

The following research questions are provided to give researchers a general idea of the questions of greatest importance to the different District offices, including the following offices: Budget Services, Human Resources, Creating and Supporting Quality Schools, Curriculum and Instruction, Health and Human Services, Beyond the Bell, and Special Education.  We encourage the research community to consider these questions when thinking of topics on which they hope to focus.  The use of these research questions does not guarantee that your research proposal will be approved, but that it will be given careful consideration by staff from the corresponding office.  This list of research questions will be updated three time annually to insure the most up-to-date questions possible.
