Background and Statutory Authority 

 

In accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) mandate at 34 CFR §300.600, 34 CFR §300.600, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) must primarily focus its monitoring activities on improving educational results and functional outcomes for all children with disabilities and on ensuring that public agencies meet IDEA Part B program requirements. TEA must focus on those IDEA requirements most closely related to improving educational results for children with disabilities. In doing so, TEA must use the quantifiable and qualitative indicators necessary to adequately measure performance in priority areas, including the provision of a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment and child find.

TEA is committed to ensuring that every local education agency (LEA) in the state meets federal and state statutory requirements. As part of TEA’s corrective action response to requirements issued by the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), Essential Corrective Action 2.a. requires TEA to ensure that all LEAs distribute information to every enrolled student’s family regarding IDEA’s child find and FAPE requirements to inform them of their rights under IDEA and to provide the contact information to request an initial evaluation.

Texas Education Code (TEC) §26.0081(c) requires TEA to produce and provide LEAs a written explanation of the options and requirements for providing assistance to students who have learning difficulties or who need or may need special education. LEAs must provide the explanation each year to a parent of each student in the district by including the explanation in the student handbook or by another means.
