Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), states must report this information to the federal government on an annual basis.

Who?

All parents of children with disabilities and a current IEP in grades preschool to 12.

(Note: This survey is not about the gifted programs and services.)

Results?

Survey results are reported to the United States Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, as part of Florida’s Annual Performance Report and are posted on the Florida Department of Education’s Website at www.fldoe.org/ese. Improvement activities are determined based on the survey report. Progress is monitored through the annual parent survey. No names will be released in any report. All responses are confidential.

 
What can you do?

The responses to the survey provide important information for planning and monitoring improvement activities. This survey, conducted once a year, provides parents with a unique opportunity to be heard.
