posted Apr 27, 2018, 10:08 AM by TC Administrator
Attention Parents: The Iowa Department of Education is requesting that all parents of a child receiving special education services complete the survey below.  This information was also sent out by email a few weeks ago, but we would like to remind you to complete this survey by June 30th if you have not already.

Below is the letter from the Iowa Department of Education:

Dear Parent,

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 IEPs.

The Iowa Department of Education is gathering these data as a census for both students with and without an IEP using a brief survey.
