"Your Voice Matters: Special Education Parent Survey School Year 2016-2017"Each school year, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is required to report to the U.S. Department of Education the "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 process. Rather, this survey is asking you to reflect upon your experiences during the 2016-2017 school year and respond to the following statement: "My child's school helped me become involved to improve services and results for my child with a disability." (Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree metric). It is important to note that your response to this survey is being collected anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child. Additionally, you may also access this survey question online at the following web site: https://www.surveymonkey.com/

If you have questions or would like to complete a paper version of the online survey, please contact Gloria Dalton, via telephone, at (804)371-7420, or via email, at Gloria.Dalton@doe.virginia.gov .

This includes students enrolled in private schools, who are home-schooled, who are highly mobile, migrant, or homeless, or who will be incarcerated in a regional or local jail for more than ten days.
