The Parent & Educator Dysle​xia Canvas Course provided by Katy ISD is designed to provide parents, educators, and community members with resources to explore dyslexia: its characteristics, risk factors, understanding dyslexia assessments and identification process. ​

The purpose of the Dyslexia Handbook is to provide procedures for school districts, charter schools, campuses, teachers, students, and parents/guardians in early identification of, instruction for, and accommodations for students with dyslexia. This handbook will be used by districts and charter schools as they develop their written procedures regarding students with dyslexia. It will also serve as a resource for educator preparation programs and other entities seeking guidance in serving students with dyslexia.


It is Katy ISD's responsibility to identify and evaluate students who within the intent of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 need special services or programs in order that such students may receive the required free appropriate education.

A student who may need specialized instruction or programs within the intent of Section 504 is one who:

·       has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of life's major activities; or

·       has a record of such impairment; or

·       is regarded as having such an impairment.

Students may be eligible under the provisions of Section 504 even though they do not require services pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Parents who believe that they have a child who may qualify for special services or programs under Section 504 should contact Linda Padron-Beech, Andrea Purcell, or Melyssa Young, the campus 504 coordinators for MayDell Jenks Elementary.
