VDOE Indicator 8 Survey

Indicator 8 Parent Survey Now Available Online
Posted on 06/28/2021

Each school year the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is required to report to the U.S. Department of Education the "Percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities." 

 Your participation in this survey will help VDOE collect additional information to identify training needs related to the special education processes. The VDOE will use the results of this survey to improve parental involvement in the special education process and improve outcomes for all students within the Commonwealth.

 It is important to note that your responses are recorded anonymously and cannot be personally linked to your child. Parents who have more than one child receiving special education services should submit one survey for each child receiving services.

 When completing this survey you will answer questions designed to cause you to reflect upon your experiences during the past school year. 

 The online survey will be open June 1, 2021 – December 17, 2021, and will be available for completion in English and Spanish at the following websites:
