Parent Survey for 2008-09 – The annual survey of parents of children with disabilities has been released. The survey forms are sent to parents with a cover letter and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Parents may complete the paper survey and return in the self-addressed stamped envelope provided or follow the directions and complete the survey on line. This survey provides important information on parents’ perceptions of how schools facilitate their involvement. Results from this survey are reported to the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) in Florida’s Annual Performance Report and the LEA profiles. The attached flier provides additional information about the survey and will assist with marketing efforts. Please encourage parents of ESE students to respond to the survey. Parents will have until June 1, 2009, to respond.
