To be a part of an Institutional Review Board-approved study, researchers have to gain consent from participants. You gave your consent during the Launch.
When school starts, we will need you to send home the Passive Consent Form home to students. You will need to read this form aloud to students and explain the cool things you will be doing. There are no real risks that we have identified. The benefits are that they will be accessing cutting-edge programming tools. The students ONLY have to return the form IF they are NOT going to participate. You will give them a window of time (two weeks or so) to return the form. If you get any forms, please email them to Hannah (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will take out any data we might have related to that student.
Again, forms are only signed, returned, and collected for parents who do NOT WISH for their child to participate in the completion of the surveys. Below, you will find the Consent Form in English and Spanish. Thank you again for participating. This work with students will have an impact across the country.
