Strengthening Family-School Partnerships in Special Education

About Us

NH Connections believes that family-school partnerships make the difference in special education. NH Connections is funded by the NH Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education to build the dual-capacity of families of children with disabilities and school staff to work together in partnership. NH Connections’ Facilitators have a wide variety of tools to support school staff and parents of children in their family-school partnership in special education initiatives.

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 parents of children with disabilities (parents of children who have IEPs) to learn more about how school districts are involving families in their child’s special education. The survey provides important information to the NH Department of Education, families and school district staff so they can continue to build effective partnerships in special education. Changes were made to the way NH administers the Parent Involvement Survey in Special Education starting in 2015. NH now conducts a census survey over a two year period. You can find out more information about this change under the Parent Involvement Survey tab.
