Special Ed Operating Procedures

Discontinuing Special Education Services

 

 

What's Required

 

The ARD/IEP committee determines whether a child has a disability and by reasons of the disability, needs special education and related services (see Region 18 ESC Framework). Some of the things that must be considered when making the determination include the following:

  • The full and individual evaluation (FIE) that determines if the student has a disability condition recognized under IDEA

  • The age ranges that are served through special education are 3-21 years (19 TAC 89.1035)

  • Parental consent for services.

 

What We Do

 

Special education services shall be discontinued when one of the following occurs:
 
No Longer Eligible for Services

  • If the ARD/IEP Committee determines a student does not have a disability condition under IDEA based upon an evaluation, or if the committee finds that the student does not need specially designed instruction provided though special education as a result of the disability, the committee will determine that the student is not eligible for special education services.

  • Before discontinuing services, however, the school must give the parent(s) and/or adult student prior written notice (English, Spanish).

Services Through Age 21

  • Special education services are available to all eligible students ages 3-21.

  • A student receiving special education services who is 21 years of age on September 1 of a school year shall be eligible for services through the end of that school year or until graduation with a regular high school diploma, whichever comes first.

  • Graduation with a regular high school diploma terminates a student's eligibility to receive special education services.


 Revocation of Consent for All Special Education Services

  • If, at any time after the school begins providing special education and related services to the student, the parent(s) and/or adult student choose to revoke consent for services, the school must discontinue providing special education and related services to the student.

  • Before discontinuing services, however, the school must give the parent(s) and/or adult student prior written notice (English, Spanish).

  • The campus Diagnostic specialist or SLP will meet with the parent to obtain a signed Prior Written Notice: Revocation of Consent for Katy Independent School District Special Education Services from the parent(s) and/or adult student.  The form will be filed in the student's special education folder and the folder will be sent to the ESC.

  • Prior Written Notice: Revocation of Consent for Katy Independent School District Special Education Services (EnglishSpanishVietnamese) is available in the special education management system.
