Application Deadlines

Provincially mandated assessment and accountability initiatives have increased significantly in recent years. These initiatives have had a considerable impact on the workload of principals and teachers at both the elementary and secondary levels and have also greatly added to the demands placed on central office personnel. These initiatives have also had a direct impact on students through increased class time spent on provincial assessments and surveys.

The External Research Review Committee will accept and review external research applications according to the timelines of four cycles during the school year. This will permit the limited number of central office staff to manage this process more efficiently and ensure that approved projects are equitably balanced across the system to avoid overload in schools. The deadlines for submitting the External Research application are outlined in the table below.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for the processing and review of the application.

Note to applicants:

External Research applications, including consent forms, executive templates, and final reports are retained on file in the York Region District School Board for a period of 10 years. Requests to extend or renew previously approved studies will be considered on a case by case basis and may require the submission of a new application.
