Welcome to the Arlington Public Schools Special Education Parent Resource Center (PRC). The PRC's purpose is to provide parents the support and information they need as they work with the school system to identify and meet their child's unique learning needs. The PRC offers support and assistance, a lending library, a parent newsletter, parent training workshops, and serves as an information and referral source for families and staff members.

Parent Involvement Survey
A Message from the Virginia Department of Education:
“All parents of school-aged children and youth who receive special education services in Virginia’s schools are encouraged to complete the Virginia Department of Education’s annual Parent Involvement Survey. This survey is not intended to measure satisfaction with the special education program. It is designed to determine whether or not the school facilitated parent involvement. The English and Spanish versions of the survey have been combined into one survey with both languages.”
If you are unable to take the survey online, please contact the Special Education Parent Resource Center at 703.228.73239 (or ask at your school) to receive a paper version. All paper versions of the survey will include a pre-addressed, postage-paid return envelope. All responses will be sent directly to the Virginia Department of Education.
If you have questions related to the Parent Involvement Survey, please contact Hank Millward firstname.lastname@example.org at the Virginia Department of Education (804) 371-0525.
