Does my child have to participate in the study?
No. It is completely voluntary. There are no penalties for you or your child if your child’s information is not in the study. Your child’s grades and school status will not be affected. You can also remove your child from the study if you change your mind later.
If you choose to not have your child in the study, they will still participate in all classroom activities as usual. This includes math tests, surveys, and programs that your child’s teacher decides to assign. However, your child’s information will not be included in the research study.
