Approximately 12% of the Hamilton Local student population has been identified with a disability.

The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) would like to invite you to participate in a short, 25 question survey about your involvement in your student’s education. Research suggests that parental involvement is a key predictor of positive educational outcomes. You may be eligible to participate if your child has an IEP and receives special education services. The purpose of collecting this information is to improve services for students with disabilities across Ohio. If you are eligible to participate and you enroll in the study, you will be entered in a drawing for several $50 Amazon gift cards. Your chance of winning a gift card is approximately 2.0%. Please click on this link to fill out the survey: https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_38GasERthq6j62G

The survey will be open between March 1 until April 30, 2021. 
ODE has included this short video to help advocate for the completion of the survey. To access the video, please visit https://ohiofamiliesengage.osu.edu/specialeducationfamilysurvey/ Password 2021.
