Special Education Parent Survey

Recently, Kansas parents of students with disabilities who have IEPs received a notification letter asking them to complete an online Parent Survey. The survey responses are used to help guide efforts to improve services and results for children and families receiving special education services.

 

If you are a parent who received the notification, and haven’t gone online to complete the survey, please do so prior to June 1st. If you have questions, please contact KSDE at 800-203-9462 or 785-296-5608. Thank you for sharing in this important process.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

The Kansas State Board of Education launched a new vision for education – Kansas leads the world in the success of each student. This vision focuses on identifying and addressing the unique needs of each student. A key piece of this vision is helping students to explore and identify their passions while graduating them with the skills needed to be successful in the workforce and in life.

 

To better address the needs of current and future students, the Kansas State Department of Education is surveying parents and guardians of children 18 years of age or younger about their current perceptions about various post-high school opportunities. In other words, how do you as a parent or guardian define success for your child? 

Please take five minutes to complete the following survey, answering questions in respect to your oldest child who is today 18 years old or younger. 

Thank you in advance for your participation in this short survey and for all you do to help our state prepare the next generation of Kansas children for tomorrow’s workforce.

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Randy Watson

Kansas Commissioner of Education
