The ARD is the Admission, Review and Dismissal Meeting held for students who are being considered for eligibility as a student with an identified disability who also needs specialized education. Every year, an annual ARD is held to discuss the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) and plan for educational and related services.

Dickinson ISD utilizes an ARD facilitation model where a specially trained, experienced, special education teacher organizes the ARD process in order to allow teachers to focus on instruction. The ARDC facilitator or clerk schedules and organizes the paperwork submitted by the students' teachers and special education providers.

There is a lot of paperwork in special education, and Dickinson ISD uses an online program called Frontline to manage the Special Education, Section 504, RTI and LPAC paperwork.
You must provide an email address to your ARDCF in order to receive your child's paperwork via the Frontline system. The advantage to using the online system is your ability to access your child's records immediately.
