2021 Special Education Parent Survey

Why are you being asked to complete a statewide survey?

In order for all students to graduate prepared to achieve a lifetime of success, families need to be an important part of the school team. It is critical that the Georgia Department of Education assist local school systems in partnering with families to raise the achievement rate for students with disabilities. Completing this survey will assist in achieving this goal.

Who is being surveyed?

The GaDOE is surveying parents of students with disabilities throughout Georgia.

What will be done with the information collected?

GaDOE Division of Special Education will work collaboratively with Parent to Parent of Georgia (P2P), the statewide Parent Training Information Center, to identify needs in family involvement within the state and local districts based on statewide survey results.

Who will see your answers?

Individual answers are kept confidential. Each response will be coded by a number – not a name.

How do you complete the survey?

You may complete the survey online in English and Spanish at

https://survey.gadoe.org/SPEDParentSurvey or www.p2pga.org

Why do you want to know my child’s ethnicity & disability?

Geographic area, ethnicity, and disability group data are collected to ensure the results are valid and reflect the overall demographics of the state. Be sure to indicate ethnicity as requested.

Who do you contact for help with completing the survey?

Contact your child’s school or your child’s case manager if you need help completing the survey.
