Seeking Your Input About Special Education Services

The WDMCS is working with the Iowa Department of Education to gather your feedback about special education services.

We ask that you take a few minutes to fill out the following survey from the Iowa Department of Education.

Iowa Department of Education Special Education Parent Involvement Survey 

Survey Information

Please use the link above to answer the following questions for each of your children. The survey will allow you to answer these questions for up to five children.

  • How old was your child on January 1, 2017? (choose 3-21)
  • Does your child have an Individualized Education Program – IEP? (y/n)
  • Did the school your child is currently attending facilitate (request, encourage or initiate) your involvement as a means of improving services and results for your child? (y/n)


The survey is open through June 30, 2017.


The Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires states to report the 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 Individual Education Plans (IEPs). The Iowa Department of Education is gathering these data as a census for both students with and without an IEP.
