Parent Involvement Survey in Special Education

The Parent Involvement Survey in Special Education is sent out by the NH Department of Education (NH DOE) each spring to all parents of children with disabilities to learn more about how school districts are involving families in their child’s special education. The survey is done each year to meet a requirement as part of our State Performance Plan. Data from the survey provides key information to individual school districts to help them improve family-school partnerships in special education. Learn more about the statewide results of the survey as well as view the survey marketing material.
