• TO PARENTS OF STUDENTS RECEIVING SPECIAL EDUCATION and/or SPEECH THERAPY SERVICES:

    We invite you to complete an online survey to let the State of Georgia Department of Special Education know your level of satisfaction with your child’s Special Education and/or Speech-Language Therapy services.  This is the address for the survey:

    www.gadoe.org/Parent-Survey

    Please consider selecting “very strongly agree” or “strongly agree” responses if you are pleased with the educational program that you participated in developing for your child at the most recent IEP team meeting.  If you feel you are unable to select one of these ratings, then please contact your child’s case manager to let her know how these things can be improved upon in order to work together to create the best possible experience for you and your child.

    Thank you for representing Sharon Elementary by participating!  Please see below for additional information:

    The IDEA Parent Survey will be open from January 15, 2020 – May 31, 2020.  The IDEA Parent Survey helps the state to determine parents’ perception of the success of parent engagement between the local school and themselves.  The information is gathered as a component of the State Performance Plan, Indicator 8: Percent of parents with a student receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving results for children with disabilities.  The data collected is reported in the Annual Performance Report and on the system profile about each system.  Each state is required to conduct a parent survey collection process to measure parent/family needs and perceptions.

    Georgia’s parent survey is available to all families of students with disabilities.  The survey will be administered through an online link and can be found on the websites listed below.
