IDEA Parent Survey

The IDEA Parent Survey located at the links below helps the state to determine parents’ perception of the success of parent engagement between the local school and themselves.  The information is gathered as a component of the State Performance Plan, Indicator 8: Percent of parents with a student receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving results for children with disabilities.  The data collected is reported in the Annual Performance Report and on the system profile about each system.  Each state is required to conduct a parent survey collection process to measure parent/family needs and perceptions.

Georgia’s parent survey is available to all families of students with disabilities.  The survey will be administered through an online link and can be found on the websites listed below:
