About the Office of Student Support Services
Stafford County Public Schools Office of Special Education & Student Services is a fundamental part of the school division as we provide highly specialized programs, services, and supports to our students, faculty, and families. Our office is comprised of Early Childhood Special Education, K-12 Special Education and Related Services, Instructional, Behavioral & Emotional Support, Section 504, Counseling Programs, social workers, attendance services, school psychologists, fostering connections, McKinney-Vento, homebound/homebased services, and Health Services.
Stafford County Public Schools engages in a public awareness campaign in to identify children or youth who may be suspected of having a developmental delay or a disability. 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. Referrals for special education can be made by anyone concerned with a child's educational performance including a parent, teacher, community agency, or school official. Please contact the Child Find Office at 540-899-6000 or the Department of Student Services at 540-658-6500.
Indicator 8 Parent Survey
The School Year 2022-2023 Indicator 8 Parent Survey collection period has begun. Due to the increased availability of technology for families, the online survey is the preferred method of survey submission. Each local educational agency (LEA) will continue to receive printed surveys and postage-paid return envelopes, but the number of copies for this year’s survey will be reduced. The printed surveys will be shipped directly to LEAs starting June 9, 2023, in quantities to match ten percent of each LEA’s December 1 child count. This will be the same for the English and Spanish versions of the survey.
The online surveys can be accessed using the links below:
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) encourages school divisions to have parents complete this year’s survey using the online links or QR codes that are available on the PSpecial Education Parent Involvment Survey SY 2022-2023 flyer. The VDOE is asking for assistance in promoting the completion of the survey by each of your families who has a child with a disability and is provided special education services through an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Families who have more than one child receiving special education services should complete a survey for each of their children.
This year’s timeline for completion and submission of survey responses, in any modality, is set for December 15, 2023.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to ensuring that we involve all parents in their child’s special education program. If you have questions or need assistance concerning this survey process, please contact Dr. Chiquita Seaborne, via telephone, at (804) 225-3898 or via email, at Chiquita.Seaborne@doe.
