Special Education

I want to share with you information about an upcoming opportunity for you to give feedback on the special education services provided to your child and how we partner with you.  

Our school district is required to collect data for the Indicator 8 Family Engagement Survey beginning in late January/early February 2024.  All families who have a child with an IEP between the ages of 3 and 17 will be invited to take the family engagement survey.  Students 18 and over, and their parents, will not be surveyed.

This confidential survey has 22 questions that ask questions about how welcoming, respectful, and supportive the school is in partnering with you as an IEP team member and supporting your child’s learning.  There’s a Preschool survey for families with a preschool-aged child and a School-Age survey for families with children 5 to 17.  Families will be invited to complete the survey online but if you prefer a paper survey, you may request one from your school district’s special education.    

Your participation is very important!!  When the survey window opens in late January/early February 2024, you will receive a letter inviting you to take the survey.  I want to see as many families as possible participate in the survey.  I hope you’ll share your experience and perspective by completing the Family Engagement Survey.   We will use the information gathered from this survey to improve how we partner with families to provide services to your child.
