Exceptional Student Education Parent Survey

Exceptional Student Education Parent Survey

Each year, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) conducts a survey designed to provide FDOE and the United States Department of Education (USDOE), Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), with information on how well Florida’s schools are partnering with parents and promoting parent involvement in their child's education. The survey is open to all parents of children with an individual educational plan (IEP) receiving ESE services from preschool age through grade 12 and is not intended for parents of students receiving only gifted services through an educational plan (EP). All states must collect this data as part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Florida uses the instruments developed by the National Center for Special Education and Accountability Measures (NCSEAM). For more information on the survey and instrumentation used, see Understanding the Florida ESE Parent Survey: Florida’s Tool for Collecting Data Related to Indicator 8 of the State Performance PlanThe survey is available from February 1, 2016 to May 31, 2016.
