Dear student,

We would like you to take a survey for an important research study that American Institutes for Research (AIR) is conducting. Your opinions are valuable and will provide educators with information to understand how to help students succeed in ninth grade.

Your participation in this survey is entirely voluntary. There is no penalty for not participating, however we hope you will because your responses are essential to understanding how teachers can best support students.

The survey will ask you questions about yourself, your teachers, and the school. Your answers will be kept private and will only be reviewed by researchers at AIR. Your responses are confidential and your name will NOT appear on your survey results.

We think it will take you about 15-20 minutes to complete the survey. If you choose not to take the survey, please ask the survey facilitator about alternative options for this time.

Questions? Contact: rbzura@air.org
