A word from the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Special Education:
The Michigan Department of Education, Office of Special Education (MDE-OSE) is committed to improving opportunities and outcomes for students with IEPs. In order to engage as many stakeholders as possible in an honest conversation, MDE-OSE has asked Public Sector Consultants (PSC), an independent, Lansing-based public policy research firm, to assist in developing, managing, and analyzing this survey. We are seeking input from our partners across Michigan about the state of special education, and your voice is an essential part of this work. Please help us to best serve districts, schools, parents, and students by completing this brief survey no later than Friday, November 11, 2016.
This survey is a first step in a process allowing MDE in general, and MDE’s Office of Special Education in particular, to collect input from a wide variety of stakeholders about how Michigan can best serve students and fully meet its federal grant obligations. Responses from this survey will be used to inform work at MDE-OSE and future stakeholder engagement.
Your answers will be shared with MDE-OSE as anonymous feedback unless you grant PSC permission otherwise. PSC will gather the feedback and report back to MDE-OSE with a synthesis of your collected comments.
You may write as much as you want in response to each question, and you are welcome to skip a question if you do not feel comfortable providing an answer. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Jeff Williams at PSC by telephone or email at 517-484-4954 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
