Annual Review and Dismissal Meetings
Guidance on Admission, Review, and Dismissal Guide Production and Required Dissemination
The Parent's Guide to the Admission, Review, and Dismissal Process (Parent's Guide) implements Texas Education Code (TEC) Section 26.0081 requiring the TEA to create a comprehensive, easily understood document which explains the individualized education program (IEP) process for a student in a special education program. Additionally, the Parent's Guide incorporates a parents’ rights and responsibilities concerning the ARD process. (Spanish Version)
The Parent's Guide contains information that parents need to effectively participate in an ARD committee meeting for their child. The Parent's Guide is intended to be a companion document to, not a replacement for, the Procedural Safeguards, which identifies parents’ rights and responsibilities in federal law. The purpose of the Parent's Guide is to create a common understanding for parents, school personnel, and communities of the IEP process for a student with disabilities. (Spanish Version)
The Parent's Guide is a living document and is reviewed on a regular basis to reflect timely and accurate information. The Parent's Guide contains a production date on the cover and in the footer of the document.
