Parent Involvement Survey

Your opinion is extremely important to us! Take the online survey or request a paper survey at your school.

The Hawaii State Department of Education (Department) is surveying parents who have a child with a disability, with an Individualized Education Program (IEP), to determine how well your child’s school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child’s education.   

Public schools will provide parents with the opportunity to participate in a short survey, which will help the Department collect data for program improvement and reporting to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education in the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report. Additionally, this information helps identify training needs related to the special education process and the results are used to improve parental involvement in the special education process towards improving outcomes for students with disabilities. It is important to note that your responses are recorded anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child.

Parents with more than one child receiving special education services should submit one survey for each child.
