Compensatory Services Related to COVID-19: Parent Survey Results
The Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA) gathered information from parents about students with disabilities and their experiences with compensatory services related to COVID-19. COPAA received a total of 254 responses representing 36 states and 206 school districts.
Federal and State guidance about compensatory services may not be resulting in the desired outcomes.
Parents who responded to the survey reported that:
- 86% of students experienced learning losses, regression or slower than expected progress towards learning goals
- Very few students (18%) with disabilities are benefiting from compensatory services related to COVID
COPAA suggests that parents who have concerns should ask for a copy of the school district's policy on compensatory services related to COVID.
