2019-2020 Private School Parent and Student Perspective Survey

As part of the new private school progress monitoring requirements, the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) was charged with developing a survey to obtain information from parents of students with disabilities served in private schools for students with disabilities, as well as a survey to obtain information from the students’ perspective. These surveys have been shared with each of the private school administrators for dissemination. However, the VDOE is asking for your assistance in promoting the completion of the survey by each of your families who had a student enrolled in private school during the 2019-2020 school year. Unlike the Indicator 8 parent survey, there is not a “hard copy” version of these surveys that can be disseminated. Therefore, the VDOE asks that you, at minimum, post the availability of the online surveys on your school division’s webpage where you post information for parents. The VDOE will also be posting these surveys to its website and posting notification of their availability.


The online surveys are currently opened and will be available for completion at the following links until October 30, 2020:

2019-2020 Indicator 8 Parent Survey


The School Year 2019-2020 Indicator 8 Parent Involvement Survey collection period is upon us. Please note that the format of the Indicator 8 survey has not changed from last year. There will be a printed survey and postage paid return envelope sent to each local educational agency (LEA) special education administrator for dissemination to parents of children with disabilities, by any means they deem appropriate. There will also be an online survey for parents to access. The printed surveys will be mailed directly to all LEAs no later than April 21, 2020, in quantities to match your LEA’s December 1 Child Count, plus an additional ten percent.


The online survey will be opened on April 15, 2020, and will be available for completion in English and Spanish at the following links:
