Survey for Parents of Students with Disabilities

January 5, 2022

ATTENTION Parents and/or guardians of students with disabilities:

Our school district is working with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to collect information on how we help you and other parents of students with disabilities to be involved in their children’s education. Parents from school districts throughout the State are completing the same survey. NYSED is working with the Potsdam Institute for Applied Research (PIAR) at SUNY Potsdam, an independent research firm, to collect the information.

Your answers to the survey are very important to us. They will help us identify how well we work with parents in order to improve services and results for all our students with disabilities. No one from our school district will see how you answered the questions. PIAR will compile the results of the surveys from all our parents and the results will be available to you in a public report issued by NYSED for our school district.

Surveys will be mailed out in January 2022, please complete them, and return in the self-addressed envelope that is included in the mailing. There will also be instructions on how to complete the questionnaire on the Internet included in the mailing.

Your participation and responses are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or do not receive a survey by the end of February 2022, please contact Dr. Joyce Carr at
