SPP Indicator 8: A results indicator that measures the percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities.


Indicator 8 Measurement:
Percent of respondent parents who reported schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with disabilities. This measurement is calculated based on results of a 25 question Parent Involvement Survey developed by the National Center for Special Education Accountability Monitoring (NCSEAM).

Indicator 8 Goal:
The goal is to have parents of children with disabilities report that schools facilitated their involvement as a means of improving services and results for their children.


Indicator 8 Data Source:
The ISBE data source is the Parent Survey (first 25 items) developed by the National Center for Special Education Accountability Monitoring (NCSEAM).


Indicator 8 Calculation:
The calculation for the resident district and state is:
Number of respondent parents who reported schools facilitated parent involvement divided by the total number of survey responses received times 100. Minimum N count of 10 is applied so districts with fewer than 10 responses are not included.


Parent Survey

National Center for Special Education Accountability Monitoring (NCSEAM) Survey for Parents of Students with Disabilities

Each year, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) gathers information from a representative sample of parents with a child receiving special education services to determine the degree to which schools throughout the state are facilitating parent involvement in their child's education. Parents from each district in the state are surveyed once every six years apart from Chicago District #299, in which a portion of parents are surveyed every year.

If you are the parent of a student with an Individualized Education Program (IEP), you may receive a survey in the mail from Measurement, Incorporated, the current contractor administering the ISBE survey. If you do receive the parent survey, please take a few minutes to complete it. The survey can be completed online or by mail. Your opinions are very important to us. Your answers will be combined with those from other parents to help the state and individual school districts improve family-school partnerships in special education. No one from your school district will know how you answered the survey questions. Aggregated results of the survey will be reported in the State Performance Plan/Annual Performance Report on the main State Performance Plan, Data, and Accountability webpage.

For more information or if you need assistance with completing the survey in English or Spanish, please contact Measurement Inc. at ISBEParentSurvey@MeasInc.com or toll-free at (877) 249-1340, extension 310 or 320.
