Annual Special Education Parental Satisfaction Survey to Launch
The Virgin Islands Department of Education, State Office of Special Education, will launch its annual Parental Satisfaction Survey on November 22 to collect confidential data on parents’ level of approval with the Special Education programs and related services provided by the Department’s divisions of Special Education.
The territory-wide survey is geared toward parents and guardians of residents ages 3-21 with a disability. The University of the Virgin Islands’ Eastern Caribbean Center will conduct the survey through telephonic interview.
Deputy Commissioner Renee Charleswell, PhD, who heads up the State Office of Special Education, noted that the results of the survey will be used to “assist the district offices of Special Education with improving services provided to children and youth with disabilities and their families, more exclusively, the State Office of Special Education, as it continues to improve overall academic and functional results for the territory’s children and youth with disabilities. We look forward to the full cooperation and participation of our parents,” she said.
