ESE Parent Survey

Each year, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) 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 these data as part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Your feedback is important in helping the state and local school systems continue improving educational programs for children with special needs. Thank you!
