Adrienne Odum, Deputy Willie Maples, Superintendent Eddie Dixon, Sheriff Tim Brown, Cpt. John Tate, and Sgt. Greg Johnson.

ESE Parent Survey

February 5, 2016

Each year, the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) surveys parents of children with an individual educational plan (IEP) to determine how well your child's school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child's education.  All states must collect this data as part of their State Performance Plan, as required under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  The survey can be completed online at the following link:  http://www.esesurvey.com.

Your feedback is important in helping the state and local school systems continue improving educational programs for children.
