    Annual ESE Parent Survey

    Parents of Special Needs Students: Make Your Voice Heard

    Take the ESE Parent Survey at

    It is time for the Florida Department of Education’s annual ESE Parent Survey. The survey helps determine how well your child’s school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child’s education. 

    The survey is for parents of students who receive special education services. Your feedback helps the state and the school district improve special education services for students and their families.   

    The survey is confidential, but PCS receives overall results and makes changes based on your feedback. As a result of feedback, the district has developed a new support group for parents of students who receive special education services, an ESE parent guide to help parents advocate for their children, and a new ESE department position that helps students and families plan for life after high school. 

    Complete the survey at starting Feb. 1. Paper surveys are also being distributed. If you need a paper survey or want more information, please contact Tracy McMannus at 727-588-6062 or
