I need to know as much as possible about my students and their families so that I can be a successful special educator. I created this brief Welcome Back Survey for parents/guardians to complete and return to school. My Welcome Back Survey helps teachers learn about their students strengths, challenges, and interests. Teachers also learn who lives with their student and what the parent/guardian's goals for their child are. Also important, the Welcome Back Survey tells teachers how (what medium) and how often parents/guardians wish to communicate with their child's teacher.
