Together, we are committed to high expectations and strong systems that achieve equitable outcomes for every student with a disability.

 

COVID-19 Information

The Department of Review and Support recognizes Local Education Agencies (LEAs) need for clarity around    potential impacts of extended school closures on Differentiated Monitoring and Support (DMS) activities due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. 

LEAs should prioritize the health and safety of students, staff, and communities. The Department of Review and Support is committed to supporting LEAs during this time.  

Current guidance and resources related to COVID-19 are located at tea.texas.gov/coronavirus.  

For support with questions related to COVID-19 impacting the LEA, please contact:  disasterinfo@tea.texas.gov  

 

 

Review and Support

The Department of Review and Support (R&S) is a unit housed in the TEA Office of Special Populations and Monitoring. The primary responsibilities of the R&S department are: (1) to monitor LEAs related to Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), special populations and federal and state statutes using a risk assessment index and holistic student-centered practices; and (2) to provide targeted technical assistance and support for LEAs related to special education and special populations. 

   

 

Texas Continuous Improvement Process

The State of Texas incorporates the SPP in the blueprint for the Texas Continuous Improvement Process (TCIP). The requirements of IDEA related to the development of the SPP and the accompanying APR correlate directly with the State's philosophy to build a system which encompasses data-driven, evidence-based improvement efforts inclusive of stakeholder needs and input. The State's general supervision system demonstrates how this philosophy guides the State in its efforts to improve results for students with disabilities.
