First, results indicated many more parents participated in the survey than in the previous year (and where we rank in the state in relation to other administrative units), and that the belief of our parents that our special educators facilitate meaningful involvement in their child's education process has risen significantly.
In 2016-17 only 50% of our parents indicated our schools encourage special education parent involvement. Our 2017-18 survey indicated this had dropped to 46%. However, our 2018-19 results indicated this had increased to 86.1%.
What a great way to exhibit our core belief that we emphasize what's good for kids over the needs and comfort of adults!
Having parents involved is good for kids, and we know doing so requires quite a bit of extra effort from our staff.
