SAN JOSE, CA – The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) is inviting parents, foster parents or guardians of students with disabilities, public and charter school staff, educators, home school services providers, community members, agency providers, and other interested parties to participate in a survey examining the continuum of services for Students with Disabilities through March 1, 2019.
This survey available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese, is part of a larger study on the continuum of services for students with disabilities and the SCCOE Special Education Task Force which was assembled to review the services available for students with disabilities from birth to adult education in Santa Clara County.
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will review principles of inclusive practices, supports and professional development, accountability, collaboration among parents and educators, and parent and community involvement. The survey will remain anonymous and will only be used in an aggregated format.
Informational letters regarding the survey and the input sessions will be distributed through school districts, Parents Helping Parents, First Five, San Andreas Regional Center, programs associated with homeschooling, Santa Clara County charter schools, and charter schools located in Santa Clara County but are members of other Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPA) located in El Dorado and Sonoma counties.
In addition, the SCCOE will host three days of input sessions from January 15 through 17. Participants can sign up for a session at the end of the survey.
