Discussion of FFY 2007 Data: Key Findings Excerpted from Survey of Parents of Students Receiving Special Education Services in Texas; Spring Administration, August 2008 at http://www.esc9.net/pages/uploaded_files/Reg9%20parentsurvey9_1%202008.pdf Central to issues surrounding parental involvement is the relationship between the school staff and parents (Table 3). In this case, about 70 percent of parents believe that they are an equal partner – a very similar finding to the fall 2006 and spring 2007 surveys. Table 3: I am considered an equal partner with teachers and other professionals in planning my child’s program Response Combined English Spanish Agree 70.5% 69.8% 74.9% Neutral 22.8% 22.9% 21.9% Disagree 6.9% 7.3% 3.3% Source: English and Spanish Spring 2008 Parent Involvement Surveys. A. Number of Responses for Table 3 1,874 B. Total Number of Survey Responses 2,658 (A / B) * 100 70.5% Table 5 shows that over 70 percent of parents agree that the school communicates regularly regarding IEP progress and other important issues. As with most other areas, the responses from the Spanish surveys are more positive. Overall, somewhat less than one-fourth of parents said that only Sometimes does these communications occur and about five percent reported Never. Communication is one of the key points in establishing trust and partnerships. Almost 30 percent of parents noted that the school communicates Sometimes or Never, indicating that communication is an area that should be improved. These results mirror those found in the fall 2006 and spring 2007surveys. Table 5: The school communicates regularly with me regarding my child’s IEP progress and other important issues Response Combined English Spanish Always 72.9% 70.8% 86.1% Sometimes 22.6% 24.3% 11.6% Never 4.5% 4.9% 2.3% Source: English and Spanish Spring 2008 Parent Involvement Surveys. A. Number of Responses for Table 5 1,938 B. Total Number of Survey Responses 2,658 (A / B) * 100 72.9% Other questions regarding communication indicate that it is an important area that should be addressed. Without communication, continued progress for the child and partnerships between school and parent would seem to be in jeopardy.

Table 6 shows that almost 64 percent of parents said that teachers Always understand their child’s needs. Table 6: Teachers understand my child’s needs Response Combined English Spanish Always 63.9% 61.4% 79.6% Sometimes 34.4% 36.8% 18.7% Never 1.7% 1.7% 1.7% Source: English and Spanish Spring 2008 Parent Involvement Surveys. A. Number of Responses for Table 6 1,698 B. Total Number of Survey Responses 2,658 (A / B) * 100 63.9% As seen in Table 7, over 80 percent of parents’ say that their concerns and recommendations are considered Always. While a very small percent say Never, there remains almost 16 percent of parents who chose the Sometimes category. Even if the parents concerns do not lead directly to actions, the parents’ concerns and recommendations should be considered. Part of parental involvement is that their concerns should be considered and the parent should believe that, in fact, this is being done in an honest fashion. The responses from the English and Spanish surveys are very similar for this item.
