Family Engagement Survey
Each school year, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) seeks parent's input about the special education and related services their child receives within the school division. The survey is a great opportunity for parents to provide input and help guide efforts to improve services and outcomes for their children. The survey is open through December 15.
