The Legal Framework for the Child-Centered Special Education Process
The Special Education Legal Framework
is a template that summarizes state and federal requirements for special education by topic. It empowers those who use it to be able to provide to every child the benefits of a free appropriate public education. Schools may use the Legal Framework as:
- A reference in managing the special education system's procedures and records,
- Ensure accountability,
- Access relevant special education data, and
- Manage system change for continuous student performance and program improvement.
The Special Education Legal Framework is a statewide leadership project in which the Texas Education Agency partners with the Region 18 Education Service Center. It is the goal of the Legal Framework project to provide leadership, training, technical assistance, and dissemination of information throughout the state on the legal updates through federal and state regulations, laws and rules.
