Parent Feedback About Individualized Education Program Team Meetings for Students in Kindergarten Through Grade 12


The Office of Shared Accountability joined with the Office of Special Education and Student Services to gather feedback from parents of students who received special education services and who were enrolled in kindergarten through Grade 12. Nearly 1,500 parents responded to a paper and pencil survey that focused on parents' experiences at Individualized Education Program (IEP) team meetings and explored parent satisfaction with delivery of special education services. Overall, the results were very positive and very similar across all school types: elementary, middle, high, and special.


  • Continue current procedures and strategies with respect to IEP meetings.
  • Further enhance the IEP process by providing additional information or a greater emphasis at the meeting on selected topics.
  • Partner with MCPS offices and Montgomery County community groups and agencies to develop alternative strategies for reaching parent groups with lower response rates.
