As part of the study called for by House Resolution 139 (HR139), the Pennsylvania Legislative Budget and Finance Committee is attempting to gain input from parents of gifted students currently served in Pennsylvania public schools through an online survey. Results from the study and this survey will inform a report scheduled for dissemination in November 2013 to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Education Committee.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education is asking superintendents, supervisors/coordinators for gifted education, and gifted support teachers to share this survey with parents. Please forward the information describing how to access the voluntary survey to any of your parents who currently (or within the last year) have a student receiving specially designed instruction through gifted education services.
To access the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LBFCSurveyForParentsofGiftedStudents
The survey will only be available for completion though Sept. 5, 2013. If anyone should encounter difficulty in accessing the link prior to Sept. 5, 2013, they should contact Terry Beam in the Pennsylvania Legislative Budget and Finance Office at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thank you in advance for your timely response to this request.
