Indicator 8 Family Engagement Survey Data Collection Update
The WI DPI recognizes this is an unprecedented time for students, families, and educators. We understand that contacting parents to complete the Indicator 8 data collection has been difficult for many school districts as a result of school closure due to COVID 19. During this time, DPI is exercising as much flexibility as we can to assist you in this process. As a result, districts are not required to take any further action for the Indicator 8 data collection this year.
DPI will leave the survey window open until June 30 for any LEAs (e.g. school districts) or parents interested in continuing the data collection and completing surveys and DPI will continue to provide technical assistance for any districts wanting to continue with the data collection process.
DPI will not rollover districts that don’t meet 10% survey response requirements to the next year, and DPI will not require all other districts to repeat the process next year.
Welcome to the opening page for the online Family Engagement survey.
Parents of students receiving special education services are invited to participate in the family engagement survey at least once over a five-year period. This survey is part of a federal data collection that measures the percent of parents who report that schools facilitated family engagement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities. Go to the DPI Cyclical Indicator page to see when your school district is scheduled for parents to take the survey (scroll down and click on “cycle list”)
When taking the survey, please have ready the letter that your school district sent to you. It has important information that you will need to enter in the survey.
Enter the parent Username into the Username field and the parent Password into the Password field when prompted.
