Dear Parent:

Your son or daughter will soon be given the opportunity at school to take part in the ERCA Post-High School Research Project by completing the ERCA Annual Student Survey. Participation in the survey is optional, and your child is not required to complete it; but it can provide many benefits to high school students as they decide what they want to do after high school. It enables students to receive targeted information from colleges and universities at the right time in their academic career; can simplify their search for obtainable scholarships; can help them learn about test prep and other valuable study aids and enrichment programs; and can provide the chance to compete for an ERCA-sponsored Community Contribution Scholarship.

How does this work? ERCA is a private, non-government-affiliated entity. To enable ERCA to provide these benefits to your child at no cost to you, your child’s personally identifiable data provided in response to the survey will be released to Colleges, Universities, and other educational entities that wish to communicate useful and pertinent information to high school students.  It will also be provided to student recognition organizations for review and the potential induction of high achieving high school students; and to ASL Marketing, LLC, a for-profit company which, among other things, is engaged in providing student data to commercial entities wishing to notify high school students about consumer products and services of particular interest to them.

How can your child participate? Your student may participate in the ERCA Post-High School Research Project at school by filling out ERCA’s Annual Student Survey form.

How can you or your child opt-out? The survey is voluntary. To opt-out, your child can simply decline to fill out the survey form or provide the completed form below to their teacher. Students who have completed the survey may opt-out at any time with an e-mail to info@studentresearch.org (please include your full name and full address), fill out and submit the below form, or write to us at ERCA, 2 Dubon Court, Farmingdale, NY 11735.

Knowledge is power! You’ll need lots of information as you make your child’s educational plans. The Educational Research Center of America looks forward to helping you receive it.

Sincerely,

Educational Research Center of America
