    Exceptional Student Education Parent Survey

    Each year, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) conducts a survey designed to provide FDOE and the United States Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), with information on how well Florida’s schools are partnering with parents and promoting parent involvement in their child's education. The survey is open to all parents of children with an individual educational plan (IEP) receiving ESE services from preschool age through grade 12 and is not intended for parents of students receiving only gifted services through an educational plan (EP). All states must collect this data as part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

    2022-2023 ESE Parent Survey

    The 2022-2023 ESE Parent Survey is open beginning March 22, 2023, and will close on June 30, 2023. The survey can be completed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ESEParentSurvey
