Conducting Research in CCPS
Clayton County Public Schools encourages meaningful, empirical research and offers the services of the Department of Research, Evaluation, Assessment, and Accountability to facilitate the efforts of researchers in conducting approved studies.
Anyone wishing to conduct research within CCPS must adhere to CCPS research guidelines as documented within the “CCPS Research Guidelines.” The CCPS RRB has been established by the Department of Research, Evaluation, Assessment, and Accountability as the mechanism for reviewing, evaluating, and approving research proposals according to the guidelines documented with the “CCPS Research Guidelines and Application Procedures.”

The Department of Research, Evaluation Assessment, and Accountability (REAA) has established procedures that are designed to:
a) govern and orchestrate research conducted in Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS),
b) protect the confidentiality and rights of staff, students, parents and district,
c) ensure that the proposed research benefits all stakeholders of Clayton County Public Schools and
d) adheres to legal (i.e., FERPA, NCLB Hatch Amendment, IDEA, 504) and ethical guidelines (i.e., codes of ethics established by Georgia Professional Standards Commission, American Educational Research Association, American Psychological Association).
All participants seeking to conduct research in CCPS must attend a Research Training/Webinar.
