Indicator 8 - Parent Involvement

Definition

Percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities.

(20 U.S.C. 1416(a)(3)(A))

 

Measurement

Percent = [(# of respondent parents who report schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities) divided by the (total # of respondent parents of children with disabilities)] times 100.

At the beginning of every school year, Colorado Department of Education randomly selects students with disabilities whose parents will participate in the parent survey. CDE sends these surveys to Administrative Units of the students’ attendance, which in turn distribute the surveys to the selected parents. The survey collection closes at the end of the school year.
