Survey Results on IEP & 504 Plan Services in Fall 2020
We received 38 survey responses. Most of the parents had a student with an IEP while five had students with a 504 plan. A total of 32% of respondents feel that their IEP team has been very attentive to their needs and 13% of families feel their IEP is being fully met. However, overall, parent experiences with special education services this year have been mostly negative, reporting issues such as ineffective supports, lack of communication, and overall failure to deliver required services.
