Institutional Review Board (IRB)
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee that meets to evaluate outside agencies, staff, and students’ proposals for any risk of psychological, physical, legal, social, institutional, economic harm, or unethical practices. The IRB is a panel of diverse district and site staff covering a wide array of expertise, as well as an external reviewer from Stanford University.
