Education for Children with Disabilities in Falls County and McLennan County, TX

The Admissions, Review, and Dismissal process helps to ensure that each child receives the individualized consideration he or she needs to improve academically.
Special Education provides a personalized education for children across the state of Texas that begins with an evaluation of your child. The ARD committee then identifies what needs to be worked on, sets appropriately ambitious goals, and makes a plan for how to proceed.
