PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT NEEDS ASSESSMENT

As part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), each school district or special education joint agreement is required to conduct an annual survey to prioritize the needs of students with disabilities.Our objectives in this survey are to determine both the service needs of the children with disabilities in the districts, and the professional development needs of educators who work with these children.

IDEA provides that needs may be assessed by sampling the views of parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, and board members. We earnestly request that you give us your counsel regarding the educational needs of our children with disabilities, so that the best possible services can be provided.

Every response is vital. Thank you for your assistance.
All completed surveys must be submitted no later than April 1st.
