Conducting Research in Henry County Schools
The District & School Performance Department supports educational research that produces fair, accurate and relevant information. We review requests on an individual basis to ensure that any research conducted does not compromise the privacy of our students, parents, or staff or disrupt the educational experience for students, teachers, and administrators.
Henry County Schools has established guidelines for the research approval process. Applications will be reviewed with respect to the district's goals and mission of ensuring success for each student. All research conducted in Henry County Schools must:
protect the rights and privacy of staff, students, and parents/guardians
not interfere with instructional time to the detriment of student learning
support continuous school system improvement goals
