We need your help to make Florida's 2014-15 ESE Parent Survey a success!
Each year, the Florida Department of Education surveys parents of children with an individual educational plan (IEP) to determine how well your child's school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child's education. All states must collect this data as part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
Make your voice heard!
This web-based survey is open as of February 1, 2015. The survey closes on May 29, 2015. You may complete the survey online at the link below OR request a paper survey from your child's school. Your feedback is important to us.
To continually provide high performing schools that include diversified experiences for all students so that they exit college and/or career ready, are productive, contributing citizens, and have an appreciation for and willingness to serve their community.
