Thank you for your interest in conducting research at Polk County Public Schools. Our district welcomes research requests that directly benefit the district, require minimal use of student and/or employee time, and align with the district’s research agenda.

If you have questions or need assistance, please call 863-534-0979 ext. 744 or email research@polk-fl.net.

Our policies and procedures have changed. The Office of Assessment, Accountability, and Evaluation will be accepting and reviewing research applications through scheduled review cycles. Applications received after an application deadline will be reviewed in the subsequent cycle. Be sure to plan accordingly as there will be no exceptions.
