    Parent Survey 2019-2020 (for parents of students receiving special education services)

    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."  Your participation in this survey will help VDOE collect additional information to identify training needs related to the special education processes.  The VDOE will use the results of this survey to improve parental involvement in the special education process and improve outcomes for all students within the Commonwealth.  It is important to note that your responses are recorded anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child. Parents who have more than one child receiving special education services should submit one survey for each child receiving services. Please reflect upon your experiences during the 2019-2020 school year. This year’s timeline for completion and submission of survey responses, in any modality, is set at December 18, 2020.

    If you have questions or need assistance concerning this survey process, please contact Hank Millward, via telephone, at (804) 371-0525 or via email, at  Hank.Millward@doe.virginia.gov
