Special education Parent Involvement Survey

Big picture

Each year the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) surveys parents of children receiving special education services in the State. The purpose of the survey – The Maryland Special Education Parent Involvement Survey – is to hear from parents about how well they think their child’s school is partnering with them and promoting parent involvement in their child’s education.


Where can I get more information about the Survey?

§ Review the Frequently Asked Questions document attached to this email. This document is included in the Survey packet parents are mailed.

§ Contact Kenneth Hudock at MSDE at 410-767-7770 or Kenneth.Hudock@maryland.gov.

Reminder Seniors

Filing a FAFSA is the single most important thing you can do to get money for college. It’s the gateway to more than $150 billion in college grants, work-study funds, and federal student funds, as well as certain state-based aid.

Get assistance with the process, attend the next 1st Monday Financial Assistance session - Monday, February 6th. For more information, please see your school counselor.


Scholarships are now available on the NCHS website. Once on the website click Menu and then under Academics you'll see Scholarship Information. If you have any questions please let me know. Please reach out to Ms. Schmitt at schmitt.julie@ccpsstaff.org. If a scholarship isn't online and a student needs paper copies, those are always available in guidance.
