Family Empowerment Center Survey Opportunity
The WestEd Center for Prevention and Early Intervention, under contract with the California Department of Education to coordinate and support the Family Empowerment and Disability Council (FEDC), is conducting a statewide survey of parents and guardians of California students who receive special education services. The purpose of the survey is to identify the ongoing and emerging information, support, and training needs of families. Data from the survey will be used to inform and improve the activities and build the capacity of family empowerment centers to continue to meet the needs families related to special education.
Support for Families is the Family Empowerment Center (FEC) for San Francisco County and is a part of FEDC, so this survey will directly impact our ability to better assist you and meet your needs related to special education.
Thank you for your input!
For more information about family empowerment centers, go to the CA Association of Family Empowerment Centers website (http://www.cafec.org/about).
