External Research

Each year, Lamar Consolidated ISD receives a number of requests to participate in research studies. While we are eager to participate in research that will enhance the development of our students and/or teachers, it is not feasible or desirable for Lamar Consolidated ISD to participate in every proposed research project. Thus, researchers are required to provide a Research Study Application for proposed research projects that fall within the district guidelines for conducting research.

The Research Study Application can be accessed by clicking the button below:

For assistance with the research application process, please call 832-223-0192. Completed forms must be submitted to
