  • Program Planning and Evaluation

    Our internal evaluators conduct formative and summative evaluations of new and established instructional programs administered within LCPS. The methods for reviewing these programs vary depending on the research questions, program design, and reporting requirements. To inform program staff and other key stakeholders of program effectiveness, we complete evaluation briefs and annual reports.

  • Research Proposals

    All research conducted in Loudoun County Public Schools requires written approval. Studies subject to approval include thesis and dissertation research by graduate students, university research projects, surveys by non-LCPS entities, and program evaluations sponsored by external organizations. Click here to access the Research Request Form and information about the approval process.
