Survey for Parents of Children with Disabilities

Survey for Parents of Children with Disabilities

Each year the Florida Department of Education (DOE) conducts a parent survey designed to provide the DOE with information on how well Florida's schools are supporting parents' involvement in their disabled child's special education and related survices program(s).  This survey is to be completed by parents whose child or children have an Individual Education Plan (IEP).  The window for the survey for the 2016 - 2017 school year is February 1, 2017 through May 31, 2017.


If you have a child with an IEP, you should have received a paper survey with an accompanying pre-addressed return envelop.  Each envelope contains a parent cover letter, a survey, and a postage-paid return envelope.  The paper surveys can be completed, OR the survey can be completed online at


Parents who have more than one child with an IEP should complete the survey for each of their children. 


The DOE will mainatain a secure sebsit for the survey and will compile the results of all returned surveys.  When parents go to the online DOE survey website, you will be asked to select your child's school district, school name, and enter your child's grade and date of birth.  The website provides assurance that the information given by the parent on the survey is kept confidential and will not be linked in any individualy identifiable way to the parent or child.
