Family Support

​​​Volusia County School’s Exceptional Student Education (ESE) Department has two family support specialists available to assist families with questions related to ESE programs and services.    

Your Feedback is Important!

The Florida Department of Education has released their annual survey for parents of children with an individual education plan.  This survey is designed to determine how well your child’s school is partnering with you and promoting your involvement in your child’s education.
The survey response window is February 13 to May 31, 2017. 
This year, parents will receive a paper copy of the survey from their child’s school however, the online version is still available click here for the online version.
Your feedback will help the state and local school systems continue to improve educational programs for children with special needs. 
If you have any questions regarding the DOE parent survey please contact Sheila Harlacher, ESE Program Specialist at (386) 255-6475 ext. 38335.
