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 supporting parents’ involvement in their child’s education. Florida uses the instruments developed by the National Center for Special Education and Accountability Measures (NCSEAM). There are two instruments: one for parents of preschool children and one for parents of children in grades K-12.
