D-200 Survey for SpecEd Advisory/Support Groups

During the parent-teacher conferences just held in the Woodstock (Ill.) District 200 schools, parents of special education students were surveyed about interest in an advisory council and/or a support group.

At each conference a form was distributed to parents (or it was supposed to be distributed). They could complete it on the spot or take it home and send it back.

Forms were to be sent home for students who did not have parent-teacher conferences scheduled.

About five years ago I urged D-200 to compile email addresses for parents of special education students, in order to be able to communicate directly with them. Apparently, email addresses are not routinely obtained. Electronic communication with parents of any student, special education or not, should be a no-brainer.

Parents should be able to expect survey results in the near future.

If you are a parent of a special education student and didn't get, or didn't return, the survey, please do so within the next few days. Thanks!
