We built this page during 2019-2020 school year, and the Dickinson ISD Special Programs Leadership team continuously updates it to stay current with relevant federal and state guidelines. This page contains the published DISD Special Education Operating Guidelines.
It is organized alphabetically by topic. Each PAGE begins with the Framework which will include relevant federal and state law.
P - Procedures - how we do it
A - Accountability - who is responsible
G - Guidance - guidance / reference documents
E - Expectations - timelines, clarity (keep it simple)
It will be amended and updated frequently to reflect changes in local, state, federal policies, board policies and administrative practices and procedures regarding students with disabilities. The special education team is available for further clarification and assistance.
