The PEAR Institute: Partnerships in Education and Resilience (PEAR)
Outward Bound is partnering with The PEAR Institute (Partnerships in Education and Resilience) on a research project to promote our students’ positive social-emotional development. As part of this effort, Outward Bound staff may invite your child to complete a brief survey that is given to students on Outward Bound courses. The survey includes PEAR’s Holistic Student Assessment (HSA) plus several additional questions about students’ social-emotional development and experience while on the course. Your child’s responses will be kept confidential, results will be reported as a group, and his/her name will never be used in any reports related to this research. Data from this survey will be used for research and educational work and only designated Outward Bound staff and Outward Bound’s research partners will have access to the results. YOU ONLY NEED TO RETURN THIS FORM IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR CHILD TO COMPLETE THIS SURVEY.
Please Note: When using the form below, make your first selection and then wait a few seconds without hitting enter. Also, this form is delivered via Formstack and is only supported on the following web browsers: Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Internet Explorer (IE) is not recommended.
SUPPLEMENTAL / FOLLOW-UP FORMS
Based on your medical form responses, some students may require follow up forms to be completed by a parent and/or Primary Care Physician. A comprehensive list of these forms can be found here for your reference.
