Research in Schools
Research conducted in the public school and/or private schools must receive approval from both the UTEP IRB and the School District Administration within which the investigator plans to conduct the study.
When the study has received approval from the IRB, a conditional approval letter will be provided. The investigator should then forward this letter to the relevant school district administration with the request for formal approval. Once approval has been provided by the school district, the investigator will need to contact the IRB Administrator so that approval letter can be uploaded through IRBNet so final approval can be released.
Links to the local districts are provided below. Clicking on any of the links will take you out of the UTEP.EDU domain.
Parental consent forms must contain an "abuse will be reported" statement clearly in bold.
Assent forms must contain a "the student feels distressed while participating in the study that they should contact the school counselor" statement followed by the school counselor's name and phone number.
