The State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report Indicator 8 Family Engagement, Parent Survey will be open for responses January 13, 2014 through March 21, 2014. While SPP/APR Indicator 8 requires that the Department determine the percent of parents of children receiving special education services who report that schools facilitate engagement as a means of improving services, the Department has designed the survey to allow for feedback from all parents. We encourage all school districts in Data Collection Cohort 2 to share the survey link and information with all families and to support their participation in this activity. As you know, research indicates that when families are involved at home and at school, there is a greater sense of community and support, and students do better in school.
In the spring, the Department will send each participating district a final report for outcomes in their district. The report provides information that can be utilized to enhance the family engagement initiatives your district provides.
If you have any questions, contact Martha Daigle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Outreach materials are available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Vietnamese and Haitian-Creole.
