All About the ARD Committee Process

What is the ARD process?

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. 


Parent Resources:

Who is my child's Campus Compliance Facilitator?


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 campus compliance facilitator or clerk schedules and organizes the paperwork submitted by the students' teachers and special education providers.

To Request Special Education Records:

  1. Email or call the student's most recent campus ARDCF Clerk to request records.
  2. Email request to Special Programs or
  3. Call 281-229-6020

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.

Navigating the world of special education can sometimes be a confusing and emotional process, especially for the first time, or if you have any anxiety associated with the process, or, if you just need an extra set of ears.  Dickinson ISD believes in a fully collaborative ARD committee meeting process and we welcome you to bring a friend, family member, or professional advocate with you to your child's ARD committee meeting.
