TEA Focus Groups
During the 2016-2017 school year, the United States Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) performed a series of onsite monitoring visits to review Texas’ compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The final report was provided to TEA on January 10, 2018.
The findings from that report require TEA to develop a plan to address four corrective actions. An integral part of the plan development process will be the gathering of input from stakeholders and other interested Texans.
TEA will be conducting a series of focus group meetings targeting district leaders, families, teachers and service providers, and students. These meetings will be held in all 20 Education Service Center (ESC) regions in the state prior to the final plan being submitted to OSEP on April 18, 2018.
ESC 2 is assisting TEA in providing notice to interested parents of the following meeting opportunity(s) and registration directions. Each one hour meeting will be structured to solicit targeted feedback from participants regarding TEA’s initial draft plan.
