DESE Family Engagement Survey for Families of Students with Disabilities, Spring 2017

Each year, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education surveys parents of students with an IEP in selected school districts to determine how well your child's school is communicating with you and promoting your engagement in your child's education. For the school year 2016-2017, families from Cohort 1 will be asked to complete the survey. Your district is participating in the survey this year as part of Cohort 1 districts. (Check the Cohort List for your school district assignment.)
The web-based survey will be open from September 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017. You can complete the survey online or using a mobile device at:  http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3002932/26252d971e2d

Surveys in other languages are also available: Haitian Creole, Portuguese, Spanish or Vietnamese. You can also complete a paper survey and mail it in or ask you district to mail it to:
Martha Daigle
Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
75 Pleasant Street
Malden, MA 02148

FAQs:
Should I complete a survey for each child? Yes, you should complete one survey for each child. Please make sure you complete only one survey for each child with an IEP.
What should I do if I need help in finding and completing the survey? You can ask your child’s teacher to help you find and complete the survey. Schools are finding ways to help all families participate in the survey.
Is the survey confidential? The survey is completely confidential and won’t include your name or your child’s name. There is no personally identifiable information requested on the survey.

Your participation in this survey will help your school district improve family engagement for all students.
