ESE Updates– Mrs. Glaid
Each year, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) surveys parents of children with an individual educational plan (IEP) to determine how well your child’s school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child’s education. All states must collect this data as part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The web-based survey is now open until May 31,2014. You can complete the survey online at http://www.esesurvey.com or request a paper survey from your child’s school. Your feedback is important in helping the state and local school systems continue improving educational programs for children with special needs. Thank you!
The next SAC/SAF meeting will be held on March 31, 2014 at 7:00 a.m. in the Staff Training Room.
