Texas Education Agency asking for feedback on their Corrective Action Plan
Last week, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) released their updated draft of the Corrective Action Plan required by the US Department of Education in response to the illegal 8.5% cap on special education enrollment in Texas.
View input and feedback to the plan here: Texas Education Agency Website
The feedback described on the TEA page linked above was used to create the second draft plan that is currently posted for public comment. Per the TEA, the current draft plan “not only addresses the federally required corrective actions, but also describes proposed improvements to how TEA supports LEAs in the effective implementation of special education requirements.” Please review the plan here: Draft SPED Strategic Plan – March 19
Our friends at The Arc of Texas and Disability Rights Texas explain the second draft plan in a 15 minute video here: https://www.facebook.com/TheArcofTexas/videos/10155057930892136/
The public is invited to provide specific comments on the current proposed draft Special Education Improvement Plan in writing by emailing TexasSPED@tea.texas.gov.
The comment period will close at noon on April 13, 2018.
TEA will aggregate the feedback received before sending a final version to OSEP by April 23, 2018.
