Parent/Guardian Informed Consent | Teacher Inquiry Research

March 1, 2021

P.K. Yonge Families — As many of you are aware, our teachers engage in a formal practice of closely examining their teaching practices, curriculum, and learning assignments to improve learning and outcomes for students.

Attached you will find a description of our teachers’ self-study work (known as teacher inquiry). See Parent/Guardian Informed Consent

You are not required to reply or sign consent for your child’s participation as there will be no disruption to our typical education program.

If you DO NOT CONSENT to your child’s teacher using your child’s work samples (with all identifying information removed) in professional presentations, please sign and return Parent/Guardian Informed Consent to your child’s teacher or the main office by Friday, March 12, 2021.  Paper copies of the attached letter will be distributed to all students on Thursday, March 4, 2021

If you elect at any time after March 12, 2021 to not permit teachers to use your child’s work (with all identifiers removed) please sign the attached document and return to your child’s teacher or the main office.  If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Dr. Lynda Hayes, P.K. Yonge Director (

Thank you for supporting our incredible teachers as they seek to improve learning for your student and supporting the mission of our school.

Have a wonderful week!

Director, P.K. Yonge
