Mentors Role in the State Parent Satisfaction Surveys
Each year the Georgia Department of Education Division for Special Education Services and Supports collects information from parents as to how schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities. This information is collected through Parent Satisfaction Surveys completed online by parents of students with disabilities. Information from the surveys is reported in the state’s Annual Performance Report to the United States Department of Education.
The online survey consists of 10 questions.
It will be available on Jan. 15, 2018 until May 15, 2018.
The Georgia Parent Mentor Partnership, in its mission to build effective family, school, and community partnerships that lead to greater achievement for students with disabilities, annually works with school districts to help staff and parents understand the purpose of the surveys and to encourage them to return the surveys to the district.
Once the survey results have been released, parent mentors use this data in planning and implementing their work to improve parent involvement and the increase the level of parent satisfaction regarding their children’s educational programs.
