Peabody Public Schools is participating in a survey to measure how well our schools are promoting Family Engagement as a way to improve services and results for children with disabilities. Research shows that schools that are good partners and engage families in education have better outcomes for the students they serve. Your feedback on the Parent Survey will allow us to learn how effectively our schools partner with parents.
The survey is designed to collect information from parents of students with disabilities only. Click here to take the survey. Please respond to all six items and rate them on a scale of 1 (strongly disagree) through 4 (strongly agree). Parents are asked to identify their district and the grade level of their child(ren). The survey is also accessible through mobile device.
A word version of the survey is available to download for parents seeking a paper survey. Any survey that completed in paper form must be submitted to the Peabody Public Schools Special Education Department at the Kiley Administration Building, 21 Johnson St., Peabody, MA. 01960 and will be forwarded to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. All surveys completed online are forwarded directly to state.
Seeing Eye Dog VisitPamela Sudore, Vision Teacher for Peabody Public Schools visited visually impaired students and their classmates from the Thomas Carroll School with Dean Denniston and his seeing-eye dog, Thor. Dean talked with the students about training and working with a seeing eye dog and using special technology for everyday life.
ACCESS POST HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMThe ACCESS Post High School Program provides students ages 18-22 the opportunity to expand their vocational and daily living skills. Students participate in community service learning tasks at various Peabody businesses such as the Torigian Life Center, YMCA and the Aviv Center. Students learn community skills including travel training for public transportation, money management, leisure interests and many other daily living skills. Students also participate in an academic program based at Salem State College through the Northshore Consortium, where they have the opportunity to meet and interact with students from other cities and towns.
