Autsim Society of Boulder County Education Committee Public School Survey
The ASBC Education Committee is currently gathering information from parents, via survey, on their experiences in the local school districts (BVSD and SVVSD). What we want to know is what things are, and are not, working for your children at school.
Right now, we have a real opportunity to affect policies that are implemented at all schools. Members of our Education Committee are meeting with members of the school boards of both Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley school districts. If we can attend those meetings with data from the hundreds of families who have a child with autism receiving public education, we will have a much stronger position during these conversations. The survey is completely anonymous and data will only be presented as aggregates. Help us find out what the most common issues are for families so we can present them to the people who can make a difference.
We recognize that what we are unable to capture in this survey are the experiences of families who--out of necessity, frustration, etc.--have pulled their kids from public schools and are either home-schooling them or have placed them (or the districts have placed them) in private schools or centers. That information is extremely important and useful as well. Should you wish to share your story with school board members (again, this would be anonymous), then please send an email directly to the Education Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
