Current Status of Plan Development:
Because the state provides the District with the cyclical monitoring and school performance data, the committee believed to truly it was necessary to establish a means to gather perceptual data on the effectiveness of district programs from those who are most impacted; the students, parents, and staff. To that end, the committee has but together four surveys: 4-5 grade students, 6-12 grade students, parents, and staff to gain the needed feedback for program refinement and improvement. The survey window will open on November 21, 2016 and extend through December 9, 2016. Following the close of the survey window the team will analyze and synthesize the survey data, which will service as an additional factor in identifying the future goals for the special education programs in the Upper Perkiomen School District. Please stay tuned as the data will be shared with the public on this special education page.
