Participation Needed for OSU Study
Educational researchers from the OSU College of Education & Human Ecology are conducting a study of factors that influence student success at Metro. Researchers have visited classrooms to explain the study and distribute permission forms to students. Participation from middle and high school students is vital, so please ask your child for the yellow and green forms they received, review the information and sign/return page 4 if you are willing to allow your child to participate in the study. Students will be asked to give their responses to two surveys regarding their Metro experience. Thank you in advance for your consideration in allowing your student to assist us with this important educational study.
