The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) wants your input. Please use your computer to fill out the 2018-2019 GaDOE Parent Survey. This survey is not accessible on mobile devices.
Why are you being asked to complete a Statewide Survey?
In order for all students to graduate prepared to achieve a lifetime of success, families need to be an important part of the school team. It is critical that the GaDOE assist local school systems in partnering with families to raise the achievement rate for students with disabilities. Completing this survey will assist in achieving this goal.
Who is being surveyed?
The GaDOE is surveying parents of students with disabilities throughout Georgia.
What will be done with the information collected?
GaDOE Division of Special Education will work collaboratively with Parent to Parent of Georgia (P2P), the statewide Parent Training Information Center, to identify needs in family involvement within the state and local districts based on statewide survey results.
Why do you want to know my child’s ethnicity & disability?
Geographic area, ethnicity, and disability group data is collected to ensure the results are valid and reflect the overall demographics of the state. Be sure to indicate ethnicity as requested.
Who can help me if I have questions?

Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) that requires states to identify, locate, and evaluate children with disabilities regardless of the severity of their disabilities, who may be in need of special education services.
Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA) has procedures in place to assist families and community entities in providing a continuous process of screening and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and evaluate children with disabilities who may be in need. If you suspect that your child has a disability and may require special education services, please contact Dr. Lynea Laws at firstname.lastname@example.org.
