Wake County surveying special-education parents

It’s time for parents of Wake County’s special-education students to speak out about how well they feel the school system is handling their children’s education.

Through April 27, the school system is asking parents of students with disabilities who have an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) to take an anonymous, online survey. The district is trying to find out how well it has responded to issues raises in the first survey conducted during the 2011-12 school year.

The survey is divided into five sections: school-based services, district-level support services, special education transportation services, community and agency resources and demographics. For instance, respondents will be asked:

▪ Is their child’s IEP being implemented as written?

▪ Are they satisfied overall with their child’s special-education program?

▪ Are they satisfied with the support they’ve received from Special Education Services?

▪ What, if any, negative first-hand experiences have they had special education transportation?

The survey is being conducted in English and Spanish. Click here for the English link. Click here for the Spanish link.
