Does your child have a medical diagnosis that limits their ability to get outside, especially during winter months? Do they enjoy seeing Santa Claus (and perhaps Mrs. Claus, elves, and carolers?) Contact us for an application to have Santa come to your home and visit your child before Christmas!

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) sent a letter/notice this summer to all school districts informing administration of all the corrective actions listed in the Corrective Action Plan Response that they should actively be doing for the remaining of the calendar year. Of the 15 corrective actions school districts should be actively working on the four described below:

Corrective Action 1.b.-This corrective action requires TEA to ensure that LEAs annually confirm that their local special education policies and practices are in compliance with federal and state requirements.

Corrective Action 2.a.-This corrective action requires TEA to ensure that LEAs annually distribute information to every enrolled student’s family regarding the following:

child find and FAPE requirements under IDEA
parent and students’ rights under IDEA
contact information necessary to request an initial evaluation for a student they suspect of having a disability
Essential Corrective Action 2.c.-This corrective action requires LEAs to collect and retain requests for evaluation data that includes the reason for the request and whether additional services are needed including the timeline for implementation. This information will not be collected by TEA until the summer of 2019 but LEAs are being notified now so that they may put local measures in place to collect the information throughout the 2018-2019 school year.

Corrective Action 3.c.-This corrective action requires TEA to ensure that all LEAs share resources with the parents of children suspected of having a disability that describe the differences between response to intervention (RtI), the state dyslexia program (for dyslexia or dyslexia-related needs), Section 504, and special education.

TEA is calling Corrective Action 2.c. essential because districts are now responsible for collecting and maintaining evaluation requests data. This data will be shared with TEA in summer 2019. This correction action requires districts to retain data that includes each request for evaluation made during the 2018-2019 school year, whether the reason for request indicates a claim that the child should have been referred for an initial evaluation prior to the 2018-2019 school year, and if the child is found eligible, whether additional services are needed, taking into consideration supports and services previously provided, and what those services are determined to be, including the timeline for implementation.
