Special Education Parent Survey

To ensure that Gothenburg Public Schools includes parents as active participants in their child’s special education process, we invite you to complete a parent survey.

The survey is available until April 1st, 2022 for parents of special education students ages 3 to 21 years of age. Gothenburg Public Schools will use your feedback to guide and improve upon our areas of weakness, and also work to promote areas that you feel are a strength for us. 

If your child has an IEP due before April 1st, 2022, you will have the option to complete the survey after the IEP meeting if you have not already done so. 

The Parent Survey is located here. Access to the parent survey link will close on April 1st, 2022.

Thank you for your time, and we value any feedback that you can provide us.
