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 April 28, 2023 to September 29, 2023. For the 2022-2023 School year, LEAs will be required to complete the 23 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).

Contact the Division of Review and Support at reviewandsupport@tea.texas.gov with any questions regarding the materials posted on this web page or with questions regarding the special education self-assessment.
