Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires states to report 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 IEPs.
The Iowa Department of Education is gathering these data as a census for both students with and without an IEP using a brief survey.
