Self-Assessment

The purpose of the special education self-assessment is to assist Local Education Agency (LEA) leadership teams in evaluating and improving their educational program serving students with disabilities receiving special education services. The special education self-assessment is completed annually by all LEAs, regardless of RDA framework determinations, and is intended to engage leadership teams in proactively addressing special education compliance and support student performance.

The window for completion of the special education self-assessment will be May 2, 2022 to September 30, 2022. For the 2021-2022 School year, LEAs will be required to complete the 7 prioritized compliance/strategy areas (Child Find, IEP Implementation, IEP Development and Content, Instructional Strategies, Properly Constituted ARD, Secondary Transition, Family Engagement) with the option to complete any other compliance/strategy areas.

Materials on this page are provided as resources to support LEAs with engaging effectively in the self-assessment process. The special education self-assessments are submitted annually in the Ascend Texas application in the Texas Education Agency Login (TEAL).
