  • 2016-2017 Parent Survey for Parents of Students with Special Needs

    VDOE SPed Parent surveyThe 2016-2017 Indicator 8 Parent Involvement Survey postcards will be mailed directly to each school division no later than May 1, 2017, and will be disseminated to each parent of a child with a disability as soon as possible upon their receipt. The format of the postcard survey remains the same as last year. The postcard will be pre-addressed and include pre-paid postage for easy return to VDOE.  The postcard asks respondents to answer one question, which will be the sole measure used to determine 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” within each school division.

    In addition to the postcard, families have the opportunity to complete an online survey which provides for responses to more detailed questions regarding how parents perceive their school facilitated family engagement during the special education process and to provide narrative commentary on their experiences in the special education process during the 2016-2017 school year.  The results of this extended survey will be used to provide school divisions with additional feedback on how parents responded to other issues related to the special education process.

    The online survey is now open and is available for completion in EnglishThis link takes you out of the Virginia Department of Education website and SpanishThis link takes you out of the Virginia Department of Education website.

    Families who have more than one child receiving special education services should complete the online survey as it applies to each of their children with special needs.

    The collection window for both the postcard and online survey will remain open until September 30, 2017. VDOE has renewed its goal of increasing the number of survey responses we receive. As such, during the collection window, VDOE will engage in a number of technical assistance outreach efforts to parents and parent organizations to ensure that every parent of a child with a disability in the commonwealth has the opportunity to participate in the survey either via postcard, online, or both. If you have questions or need assistance concerning this survey process, please contact Hank Millward, Director, Office of Specialized Education Facilities and Family Engagement (SEFFE), via email at Hank.Millward@doe.virginia.gov or by telephone at 804-371-0525.
