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. Parents who have more than one child receiving special education services should submit one survey for each child receiving services. 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. This survey is not intended to measure your satisfaction with the special education program process. Rather, this survey is asking you to reflect upon your experiences during the past school year.
It is important to note that your response to this survey is being collected anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child. You may also access this survey online at the following website:

The online survey will also provide you with an opportunity to address, in more detail, specific experiences with your school during the past school year. If you would like a paper copy of the survey, please contact Melissa Minnick at (540) 667-4253 ext. 12115.
