2020-2021 Indicator 8 Parent Survey

2020-2021 Indicator 8 Parent Survey

Families & Schools Parent Involvement Survey

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.”  To gather this year’s data, the School Year 2020-2021 Indicator 8 Parent Survey response collection period will continue through January 31, 2022.  As was done with last year’s survey collection, a printed survey and a postage paid return envelope will be made available to each family who has a child with a disability being provided special education services through an Individualized Education Program (IEP).  The printed survey will be available for distribution beginning in August 2021.  Families who have more than one child receiving special education services will be afforded the opportunity to complete a survey for each of their children. 
 
There is also an online survey for parents to complete in lieu of the printed survey.  The online survey is now open for completion in English and Spanish versions at the following web links:
