Parent Survey – Parent Involvement
The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) requires school districts to administer the Parent Involvement Survey every year to parents with a child receiving special education services. The data collected from the parent surveys will assist the District in identifying our strengths and needs in order to facilitate parent involvement as a way to improve services and outcomes for children with disabilities.
To access the survey use the links below. The Phoenix Union High School District/LEA code is 4286. If you have any problems accessing the survey online, you can contact Beth Viquesney at firstname.lastname@example.org or 602.764.1320, ParentSurvery@azed.gov or 1.844.381.4324.
Thank you for completing the Parent Involvement Survey. Your opinion matters!
Phoenix Union High School District is required by federal and state law (34 CFR 300.220.34 CFR 300.121) to conduct an annual “Child Find” effort as a means to locate, identify, and evaluate all resident children with disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private schools, regardless of the severity of their disabilities. The purpose of Child Find is to locate these children so that a free appropriate public education can be made available. Upon request, PUHSD will screen any resident child who has not graduated from high school to determine whether a special education referral is appropriate. The information from the screening is used to determine whether a child should be evaluated for a suspected disability. When the school staff reasonably believes a child is a child with a disability, they refer the child for evaluation by the school’s Multi-disciplinary Evaluation Team (MET).
Eligible students are entitled to a free and appropriate education, including specially designed individualized instruction for disabled students between the ages of 3 and 21. This law applies to EVERY eligible child, regardless of the severity of the disability and assures confidentiality procedures are followed.
If you suspect that your child has a disability (emotional, mental or physical) and does not receive Special Education services, contact the special education department at your local Phoenix Union High School or by writing to Vicki Heard, Director of Special Education, at 4502 N. Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ., 85012.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Federal law concerning the education of students with disabilities, requires schools to provide parents of a child with a disability with a notice containing a full explanation of the procedural safeguards available under the IDEA and U.S. Department of Education regulations.
