Research and Assessment

Research in the Gresham-Barlow School District

The Gresham-Barlow School District (GBSD) is a learning organization. Inspiring and empowering each student is the core of our mission.  As such, we encourage participation in research for the development and improvement of education. All requests for research will be reviewed by the GBSD Research Review Committee. Due to the number of research proposals received and because it is the mission of the district to educate students rather than to conduct research, not all research proposals will be approved. Use the links below to start the research request process.  Please reach out to Tim Collins, Ph.D. - Director of Secondary Curriculum & Instruction if you have any questions or need additional support.
