Special Education: 2018-2019 Indicator 8 Parent 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 2018-2019 Indicator 8 parent survey response collection period will continue through January 31, 2020.  As was done with last year’s survey collection, a printed survey and a postage paid return envelope will be sent to each local educational agency’s special education administrator in quantities to match the agency’s reported December 1 child count, plus an additional 10 percent.  The printed survey will be available for distribution beginning in August 2019.  Once received, a copy of this survey should be provided to each of your families who have a child with a disability being provided special education services through an individualized education program (IEP).  Families who have more than one child receiving special education services should be afforded the opportunity to complete a survey for each of their children.
