    Data and Research Requests

    Applications to Conduct Research in OUSD


    Oakland Unified School District is currently not accepting applications to conduct research, with the following exceptions.


    The District continues to accept the following research applications:

    1.      renewal applications for previously approved studies

    2.      applications from current OUSD employees who wish to conduct research in OUSD as a part of their postgraduate studies

    3.      applications from OUSD partner organizations for evaluation studies of programs conducted in OUSD schools


    As research applications may take up to 6 weeks to be reviewed, please plan ahead and submit your application well in advance of the projected start date of your project. The blank OUSD research application form may be downloaded from HERE. Email the completed application to Jean Wing at jean.wing@ousd.org.

    In some cases, OUSD schools or departments wish to partner with external researchers to collaboratively design studies that are aligned with our Strategic Plan and provide direct and immediate benefit to the district. In such situations, the sponsoring OUSD employee should contact the Research and Evaluation division of the Department of Research, Assessment and Data (RAD). Please email Jean Wing at jean.wing@ousd.org for information on how to proceed.
