Research Study & Opt-Out Form

Hamden High School parents/guardians are being asked to provide consent to participate in a research study, “Why Do They Stay: Examining School Climate Perceptions Among Minoritized Students”. Participation is voluntary. You can say yes or no. If you say yes now you can still change your mind later. Some key points to consider are summarized in the clickable pdf, but you should consider all of the information in this document carefully before making your decision. This research is being done to better understand school climate perceptions among minoritized students. Participation will involve approximately 20-25 minutes of your child’s time for the survey.  Opt-out form is due May 30, 2021.
