Your Opinion Matters!

Each year, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) surveys families of students with an IEP in selected school districts to determine how well your child’s school is communicating with you and promoting your engagement in your child’s education. It’s your district’s turn this year. The web-based survey will be open from

October 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018

You can also complete a paper survey and mail it in or ask your district to mail it to the address below.

I have more than one child with an IEP. Should I complete a survey for each child? Yes, you should complete one survey for each child.  Please make sure you complete only one survey for each child with an IEP.


What should I do if I need help in finding and completing the survey?

all families participate in the survey.
