Student Handbook Statement

TEA is required to provide school districts and charter schools a written statement of the options and requirements for providing assistance to students who have learning difficulties or who need, or may need, special education services (Texas Education Code §26.0081).

The statement must explain that the parent may, at any time, request an evaluation for special education services. Parents must receive the statement in a written format every year. A school may include the statement in the student handbook, or a school may disseminate the statement through other means such as a letter or newsletter to each parent and ensure that each parent receives a copy.

This statement is available in HTML (English | Spanish) or as a Word document (English | Spanish).
