Special Education

In the Sharyland Independent School District, students with disabilities have the opportunity to participate in an educational program that is designed to meet individual needs. Students are educated on their home campus in an environment that will contribute to the student’s educational success.

Our goal is to provide valuable daily educational experiences, which will prepare each student for a lifetime of meaningful and functional living. Services are provided on a continuum of child-centered and supportive services combined to meet the needs of eligible students with disabilities.

Parent and Community Involvement: We believe that parental and community involvement is essential for a quality education. When parents participate, we all become partners in the planning and teaching of their child.

Referral for Special Education:
The referral process starts with recommendations from either: (a) teachers, (b) parents, or (c) other professionals. If a student is determined to be eligible for special education an Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD)/Individual Education Program (IEP) Committee meeting is held. Committee members discuss and agree upon an appropriate educational program and placement for the student.
