Abstract

This study explores the collaboration of parents and school team members to increase students with disabilities' overall success. The subjects chosen to participate are from Albion Elementary School, consisting of ten students, five teachers and three parents. Each participant completed a yes/no checklist containing question regarding behavior charts, communication, backpacks and homework. These checklists were collected and analyzed.

Results from the data collected indicate that students do not have the same viewpoint as parents and educators regarding their backpacks being checked after school. These findings lay a foundation for future research to further explore students, parents and educators perceptions and viewpoints and how they compare to each other.
