IDEA requires each state to submit a special education State Performance Plan (SPP) and Annual Performance Report (APR) to the U.S. Department of Education.
One of the indicators in the Performance Plan requires states to report: Percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities.
This survey is not intended to measure satisfaction with the special education program. It is designed to determine whether or not the school facilitated parent involvement.
Complete the Parent Involvement Survey
Parents who have more than one child receiving special education services may submit one survey for each child receiving services.
Your participation in this Parent Involvement Survey will help the Virginia Department of Education collect the information needed to report on this indicator. In addition, the information may be used by the school division in which your child attends school but your responses will be kept anonymous and never be personally linked to your child.
This survey is asking you to reflect upon your experiences during the current school year. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Gloria Dalton at the Virginia Department of Education, (804) 371-7420 or email@example.com.
