We are asking that your child take part in a research study being done by Dr. Quianta Moore at Rice University in Houston, TX.

If you choose to allow your child to be in the study, your child will complete a survey.  The survey will contain questions about your child’s physical, behavioral/mental and social needs. We are asking everyone within the HISD district to complete a survey to better understand the needs of children.

The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete.

Your child can skip questions that he or she does not want to answer or stop the survey at any time. The survey is anonymous, and no one will be able to link your child’s answers back to him or her. Please tell him or her not to include his or her name or any other information that could be used to identify him or her in the survey responses.

The survey will be conducted on an anonymous, secure online format that is HIPAA approved for protecting the respondent's private information.

This research study is voluntary. Please tell the school or researcher if you do not want to participate.
