The Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships in Education Research (Research Partnerships) topic supports partnerships composed of research institutions and state or local education agencies that have identified an education issue or problem of high priority for the education agency that has important implications for improving student education outcomes. These partnerships are to carry out initial research and develop a plan for future research on that education issue. Through this joint research, the education agency’s capacity for taking part in research and using research results is expected to increase. The ultimate goal of the partnerships supported under this topic is to conduct and promote research during and after the grant that has direct implications for improving programs, processes, practices, assessments, or policies that will result in improved student education outcomes. To ensure a full partnership, each organization involved in the partnership will provide at least one Principal Investigator (or Co-Principal Investigator) to the partnership and the Principal or Co-Principal Investigator from the education agency is to have a role in decision-making regarding the issue to be examined.
