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.

If you have any questions, please contact Meredith MacQuigg, Data Consultant, Iowa Department of Education, 515.494.5610 or meredith.macquigg@iowa.gov.
