  • Updates in Special Education

    Beginning with the 2017 school year, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) changed the way it reports special education enrollment in school systems. TEA no longer includes a target for a school system’s total numbers of students in special education as part of state monitoring. For special education representation, TEA only reports on over-representation within certain race, ethnicity and disability categories, asrequired by federal law. School systems cannot use this reporting data to delay, deny or prevent a referral for an evaluation for special education services.
