To the FCPS families who have children with disabilities in the school system,

Because we value you as partners in your child's education and you are an essential member of the IEP team, we would like your feedback related to your IEP team meeting experience at your child's school. This survey is anonymous.

Your school may provide you with this postcard (Adobe PDF File, opens in new window)to take the survey or you can complete the survey online:

Your insight is valuable to assist FCPS with facilitating meaningful parental participation in the IEP team meeting process.

Thank you.
