The U.S. Department of Education requires the Indiana Department of Education-Office of Special Education (IDOE) to find out if parents of students with disabilities think the school encourages them and makes it easy for them to be involved in their child's education program. Our records indicate that you are the parent of a student who received special education services during the 2014-2015 school year, and IDOE is asking for your help in completing an important survey.
Beginning in January 2015, parents will be asked to complete the survey immediately after the annual case conference committee meeting instead of at the end of the school year. If you are/were unable to complete the survey at the school after the case conference committee meeting or if your child’s annual case conference committee meeting occurred earlier this year, you still have an opportunity to complete the survey.
The survey is easy to complete and will take no more than ten minutes of your time. You will answer various items regarding your experience in working with school staff and about the special education services your child has received. All survey responses are confidential, and no individual information is disclosed. Your responses will be combined with the responses from other parents in your school corporation, and a summary of the results will be provided to the school corporation and to IDOE at the end of the school year. We sincerely hope that you will complete the survey as soon as possible.
You have two options for responding to the survey:
1. Online – complete the web-based version of the survey at: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42805655713962
2. Paper version – you can request a paper version from:
Christina Furbee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-232-9142
If you do not have access to a computer or to the internet, the school will help arrange access for you.
Please remember, if you have more than one child receiving special education services, you will be asked to complete one survey per child after the annual case conference.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, and thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the survey.
