ESS Parent Survey – Tips to Increase Participation

Tips to Increase Participation

Use the ADEConnect ESS Parent Survey progress report tool to track survey completion by school site and student name.

  • Send staff a screen shot of the school-site tally. Teachers will be motivated to increase parental participation on their campus.
  • Study school-site rates to ensure the overall number of completed surveys represents district and school demographics.
  • Reach out to parents of students who haven’t completed the survey. Personal contact will make a difference.

For assistance contact: Becky Raabe, [email protected], or (928) 637-1871.

Parent Involvement Survey – Strategies to Boost Parent Participation

Strategies to Boost Parent Participation

#1 Offer use of a school computer or tablet when families are on campus for parent/teacher conferences, IEP meetings, school events, pick-up and drop-off times, parent group meetings and when you make home visits. Have translators or support staff available to assist parents.

#2 Follow-up phone calls, emails, and personal interactions to confirm parents received a login code are effective. Mention that the survey will take only a few minutes to complete and that their input is valued.

#3 Use email, social media, and message apps to promote the survey and send periodic reminders.

For assistance contact: Becky Raabe, [email protected], or (928) 637-1871.

Parent survey information and family engagement resources are posted on the survey website, www.azed.gov/specialeducation/parent-involvement-survey-admin.
