Last year the Iowa Department of Education asked your District to share the IDEA Part B Parent Survey and they would like for you to do that again. A follow-up email will be shared next week, but until then please see letters below and share with your Parents.
Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires states to report the percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities. This year, the Iowa Department of Education is gathering these data as a census for both students with and without a disability using a three-question survey.
Attached is a Parent Letter with a survey link that you are asked to share with all parents via email, website, and/or social media.
