Historical Texas Register

(a) Each school district must maintain an eligibility folder for each student receiving special education services, in addition to the student's cumulative record. The eligibility folder must include, but need not be limited to: copies of referral data; documentation of notices and consents; evaluation reports and supporting data; admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committee reports; and the student's individualized education programs (IEPs).

(b) For school districts providing special education services to students with visual impairments, there must be written procedures as required in the Texas Education Code (TEC), §30.002(c)(10).

(c) Each school district must ensure that each teacher who provides instruction to a student with disabilities:

  (1) has access to relevant sections of the student's current IEP;

  (2) is informed of the teacher's specific responsibilities related to implementation of the IEP, such as goals and objectives, and of needed accommodations, modifications, and supports for the student; and

  (3) has an opportunity to request assistance regarding implementation of the student's IEP.

(d) Each school district must develop a process to be used by a teacher who instructs a student with a disability in a regular classroom setting:

  (1) to request a review of the student's IEP;

  (2) to provide input in the development of the student's IEP;

  (3) that provides for a timely district response to the teacher's request; and

  (4) that provides for notification to the student's parent or legal guardian of that response.

(e) Students with disabilities must have available an instructional day commensurate with that of students without disabilities. The ARD committee must determine the appropriate instructional setting and length of day for each student, and these must be specified in the student's IEP.

(f) School districts that contract for services from non-public day schools must do so in accordance with 34 Code of Federal Regulations, §300.147, and §89.1094 of this title (relating to Students Receiving Special Education and Related Services in an Off-Campus Program).
